“I am a candidate because I enjoy working with and on behalf of children and welcome the challenges of being a board member. I believe that I contribute valuable business expertise in the areas of financial stability and facility management. If elected for another term, I will continue to provide leadership in these areas and assist the corporation to build upon its demonstrated success in educating children while adapting to changing state and federal accountability.

“During my tenure of service on the board, including three terms as president, our corporation built a new high school and continually upgraded all of our other schools while maintaining one of Hendricks County’s lowest school tax rates. At the same time, we have provided an excellent education to our students, evidenced by our consistently scoring in the top 10 percent in every measurement category.

“I pledge to continue my efforts to maximize the education opportunities available to our children, while at the same time, to closely monitor all expenditures to ensure tax dollars are spent wisely. Simply stated, I pledge to continue to do what is best for the kids.”
