It's time to restore public trust in the Rochester Public School Board. I'm running for the board because, as the husband of a public school teacher, I have seen first-hand how decisions made at the board level affect our staff. As a property tax payer, I personally feel the impact of poor stewardship of my taxpayer dollars. Most frustrating of all, the attention that the Board has drawn has detracted away from what our true focus ought to be, our students. I'm running for school board to help restore public trust in the board's ability to govern, to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars, and to shift public focus back onto providing the highest quality education for our students.
