Why I want to serve as a school board trustee.

I want to use my experience
I am running for the SSF school board to serve our community. I believe the position is one of honor and respect given to someone who has the desire and commitment to serve. I've had the opportunity to serve our community for the past 17 years in a variety of ways and positions. I would like to continue my involvement with the school district by becoming a policy maker. I've been a member of two school bond oversight committees starting in 1998. I've served with teachers and administrators on the first bond. The second bond is made up of community members in which I'm serving as chairperson. I've learned a lot of the inner workings on how bonds benefit our schools physically with updated facilities. I've developed an understanding of the financial and budget analysis that are extremely important to the cohesive stream of construction projects. Over my many years of serving the school district, I've visited all our school sites and have seen the improvements allowed by these bond measures. I must say that it is very impressive and our students are reaping the benefits. I believe the oversight committee has and will continue to do the good work they have been assigned by the trustees.
