Education is our investment in society’s future.  As a parent of three PUSD students, I am passionate about youth.  Since elected in 2008, I have been an advocate for maintaining and enhancing educational programs and services for kids despite the challenging budget times.  I believe in ensuring that ALL of our students reach their maximum potential.  I will continue to look for ways to keep kids engaged, healthy and happy in their school communities.

It is important to be fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars by governing with discipline and discretion.  Being accountable to the public and being transparent in all actions and decisions is a priority of mine.  Public input is vital and I will continue to encourage and seek participation by the community in the public process.

I will work to ensure that all PUSD students graduate with the skills they will need to succeed in a global economy and prepared to be socially responsible citizens.
