I am running fo ran at-large seat on the Verona Area school board. As a father of three young children in the district, I am concerned about our districts long term viability. We are facing the same old issues of tight budgets due to decreased financial support mixed in with new concerns over changing demographics, the impacts of Charter schools, and the loss of veteran educators and leaders. We need to have more open dialogue which engages all parties with a stake in the districts long term success. The goal of these conversations would be to help identify a viable and sustainable path that ensures academic quality for generations to come. We have a great district. We are served by excellent teachers, support staff, and administrators. I will work to ensure that these resources are respected and valued for their contributions while being a good steward of the public monies entursted to the district. Please vote for me on April 3rd to be your representative on the Verona Area school board.
