It’s time for a fresh perspective, that brings transparency and pragmatic management of financial resources, to the Sarasota County School Board to best serve and ready our students for the future.

Mission 1: Fresh Perspective

I’ll always look for the most effective solution for our children and look for innovative solutions to current problems.

Mission 2: Protect Local Control Of Education

It’s time to stop allowing Washington to control our education, we must fight for local control of education.

Mission 3: Increased Transparency & Accountability

All discussions and decisions should be done in full view of the students, parents and taxpayers that are affected by decisions made by the School Board Members.

Mission 4: Engage The Community

I will bring everyone to the table – taxpayers, teachers, parents and students – to help advance education in Sarasota County.
