Questions & Answers

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

I have served the families of Norwood for the past eight years on the school board. I am a good listener, I tend to be proactive rather than reactive and I am a strong advocate for better public education.

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

1) To continue to provide the tools necessary for our administration and our teachers to help our students attain the next level. 2) To work with our city police, fire, building and health departments to provide a safe healthy and happy environment for our students, families and our staff. 3) Do whatever possible to maintain the talent that we have so much invested in. We cannot allow them to run off to the richer, larger districts. We need to try and maintain a good balance of good wages and benefits for them to want to stay.

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

I am a true advocate of ammending the Ohio Constitution. We can no longer afford to keep this burden on the backs of local taxpayers. It is difficult as a board member every couple of years to ask people to give up more money or explain that is just a renewal. The citizens of the great State of Ohio need to stand up and elect only individuals who will take on this challenge.
