For Live Oak School Board Member
Occupation: Fire Captain/Dad Age: 45
Education: BA - UCLA; MPA - University of Colorado
I was elected four years ago at a critical time for our school district. After years of state budget cuts, our schools were in need of effective leadership and strong advocacy.
Through collaborative partnerships with parents, teachers, support staff, district administrators, local nonprofits, and community leaders, our schools are preparing Live Oak Elementary School District students for success in high school, college, career and life.
Some of our District Accomplishments since 2012:
Created a comprehensive educational plan (LCAP) leading to improved student achievement and increased focus on critical thinking and problem solving skills
Opened an exceptional new youth center--the Live Oak Boys & Girls Club
Established the Live Oak Education Foundation to promote enrichment opportunities for our kids
Designed student-led parent conferences and family learning nights to foster parent-teacher interaction
Conducted a successful parcel tax renewal campaign that guarantees local funding for art, music and hands-on science education through 2029.
Having served as Board President for the past three years, I am seeking re-election because there is still much more that we can achieve together.
As a parent, I am personally invested in our public schools and committed to making them the best that they can be.
I respectfully ask for your vote.
