For Scotts Valley Unified School Board Member
Occupation: Incumbent Age: 71
For 12 years, I have served as an effective Trustee for Scotts Valley Unified School District focused on maintaining quality educational programs, hiring and retaining quality teachers and staff including a parcel tax to sustain teacher staffing levels during the economic downturn, passing a bond for rebuilding our middle school, and keeping a balanced budget. Our students continue to achieve. Our schools are recognized in the top 10% of schools in California with a 97% graduation rate and 97% of our students continuing on to higher education.
I have committed myself for over 40 years to strengthening our youth and community. I will work actively and collaboratively with students, parents, schools, community, and businesses to keep our schools strong and effective. Good schools equate to a healthy, vibrant, and active community.
Student achievement through quality educational programs, fiscal responsibility, teacher retention, facilities, legislative advocacy, and open communication will be my continued focus. Our youth is our future. Quality education is their key.
I hope that I have earned your support and to continue to represent you as a Trustee of the Scotts Valley Uniified School District.
