Questions & Answers

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

Appointed to board 8/06 and have improved board's working relationships. Medical background and family values (mother of 4 attending schools in district) as well as deep roots in the community.

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

Continue good working relationships with district administration and teachers, encourage increased community involvement in board activities, and continue conservative spending with responsible oversight.

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

This is definitely needed, and the proposed amendment was a decent starting point, but the need to fix funding is so urgent that many districts, including Northwest, found themselves unwilling to support it since it would hurt ongoing efforts to pass a levy. This vicious cycle, the very thing that necessitates the amendments, makes it difficult to promote.
