Questions & Answers

For the April 2019 Election

What is the importance of the District 137 School Board to your constituents?

The important responsibility of the District 137 School Board is to work with our community to improve student achievement in our local public school.

Why are you qualified to be on the School Board?

I possess sound judgment, an even temper, a willingness to collaborate and a sincere interest in public education and as a former employee of Rantoul City Schools, I possess a great deal of knowledge of district needs and that of the children it serves.

If elected, what is something you want to accomplish on the School Board, and how long will it take?

My primary vision and goal is to see improved student achievement in the district and I see it starting its turn around in 2 years.

Is there anything else you would like to say to an undecided voter?

If you have noticed any of the following signs out of our current School Board, it’s time for change:

1. A school board member continually focuses on one issue or talks aimlessly at meetings.
2. A school board member doesn’t conduct him or herself in a respectful, collaborative manner in public.
3. A school board member comes to meetings unprepared.
4. A school board member “rubber stamps” all the superintendent’s proposals without asking hard questions.
5. A school board member micromanages rather than focusing attention on district-wide policies.
6. A school board member uses his position on the school board as an opportunity to put forth a political agenda with little relevance to student achievement.

Please send a strong message for having improved student achievement by allowing me to be your voice as a Member of the Board of Education Rantoul City School 137, vote for me on April 2, 2019.
