Thank you for visiting my campaign site to learn about me and my commitment to Dexter Schools!
I am a lifelong Washtenaw County voter. My wife and I were born and raised in the area and chose to return here with our four school-age children after 21 years of service across the country and around the world in the U.S. Navy. We chose Dexter because of the educational opportunities that Dexter Community Schools offers to families and I am committed to enhancing these opportunities as a Board of Education Trustee.
I was appointed to the Board of Education after being unanimously selected from a pool of dedicated parents to fill a vacated seat in January, 2012. As a Trustee I have used my perspectives as an active and involved Dexter parent and award-winning perennial school volunteer, my extensive leadership experience, and my steadfast commitment in service to the Dexter community to guide my decisions. I understand the role of a Board of Education Trustee is to see the big picture and to focus on policy decisions rather than micromanaging the operations of the District. I have worked effectively with my colleagues on the Board to minimize the impact of revenue reductions on the classroom and to ensure that decisions are sound and promote the achievement of all students throughout their Dexter Community Schools experience.
I am dedicated to fulfilling the remaining 2 years of the Board of Education term I was appointed to fill and to serving the students of our district well into the future. Dexter is a dynamic, growing community that deserves to be represented with high expectations for all our students and responsible stability during the myriad challenges our district is currently facing.
Thank you for your support!
