Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Nineteen years as a District employee, and four years as a trustee. I was very involved as a parent volunteer K-12, and volunteered on many school and district committees over the 19 years as an employee and so much more. I have a broad perspective and with that a lot to offer.
