Previous Experience in Government or Schools: SMS Support Group- School Board Liaison Officer. I have attended 20 plus school board meetings in the past and to keep up with current topics, I plan to attend every school board meeting until the election is over.

Why run for school board? Parents, school board members as well as students asked me to run. I was told that I have helped students and parents for so long that I should run for school board and help at the next level. It seemed like the logical progression, so with the blessing of my family, I agreed to run. (See also Why Run)
