Why I Am Running

I am running for the RSF School Board to provide fiscal leadership to the school district.  I want to look at the current budget and prioritize within that.  I have always been against raising taxes to solve our problems with our residents’ money.
I want to ensure our children have the best technology in their classrooms.  Our children are inundated with technology from an extremely young age, and as parents, it is hard to keep up with the latest trends.  If the technology in our homes is changing rapidly,  shouldn’t the technology in our schools keep up to date, as well?

 

As a technology entrepreneur, I have the experience to research the latest technologies that are applicable for a school environment and help to choose the best ones, while staying within budget.  

 

With a strong background in business and management, I will ensure that our children continue to have the best teachers and staff, while being fiscally responsible with our tax dollars.  

Maintaining the spirit and lifestyle of the Covenant is paramount.  No school expansion plans should be undertaken that would cause traffic to spill over into our precious residential streets, which would reduce property values.

The west parking lot should be paved, so that more parents are motivated to park there when picking up their children in the afternoon.  This should help to alleviate the after-school traffic.

 

The gym revitalization has been controversial to our community.  The gym has about 10 years of life left and it does not aesthetically blend with the rest of the school.  All plans should be priced out, including incremental updates over time.  However, any renovations should be done within our existing budget, with no new bond revenues from our already heavily-taxed residents.

**Any of the above plans that cannot fit within the existing budget will not be considered any further.**

We’re invested in this together.  

 

Let’s focus on our children’s future.

 

Let’s ensure that the RSF School District continues to give our children the opportunity to succeed in the 21st century!

Continue the fiscally responsible oversight of the school district. We will work within our existing budget, first and foremost.  Since I represent the community, I would only support any new bond measures if there was great community support for them.
