Questions & Answers

1. What are your qualifications for office? (50 word limit)

Professionally, I've worked with many organizations throughout Greater Cincinnati and have spent my career to date educating them of the importance of leadership, commitment to a mission, and people knowing their roles. This is no different.

I have had P\L & budget responsibilities in many roles. I have spent the past 20 years volunteering in many capacities, including the district (Expense Reduction Team, Alternative School Team), the Colerain Boosters (Executive Committee), Leukemia Society (raised over $10k) through running marathons, White Oak Presbyterian Church (Elder + 3x), and little league coaching. I believe a good board member is one who gives of themself to a greater good and not a personal agenda + I, as I have throughout my professional and volunteer capacities will continue to do that.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (100 word limit)

1. Increased communication - because of our large and varied district we need to get more involvement and a much better understanding of the challenges we face and the constraints we have. I would proposed more study teams and communication laisons throughout our community (seniors, parochial, churches, civic & business associations.

2. Bigger vision - the school board and the township need to work together for the betterment of the entire community

3. Challenge our administators - we have done an outstanding job of doing "more with less". We need to continue to be creative in our thinking to provide the best quality education for the lowest possible cost.

3. What is your position on amending the Ohio Constitution with regard to the funding of public schools? (150 word limit)?

I'm not quite sure we need a consitutional amendment. We might start by looking at best practices of other states and learning what works for them.
