School Board members are supposed to be representatives of the people in the community. As such, I will never stop listening to parents and other stakeholders to try to best reflect their needs. I will do this by increasing access to people who might not be comfortable standing up at a microphone in front of a crowd to share their concerns at a School Board meeting. I will hold regular “office hours,” where people can bring me their concerns and their joys. All of the people in this District should truly feel they have me advocating for them, as I have advocated for the parents at my school and on the PTA Council.
