What do you feel are the two key education related issues Mission voters should be considering when choosing trustee representatives in this civic election?

1. Offering the courses and programs to make our students successful in their school journey throughout elementary and secondary.

2. Financial oversight.

Why and what would you do to address these issues?

I think number 1 is important to our students that they get the best education we can give them to be able to be competitive in their post grad choices. I have seen in the past 3 years the board move to a good communication  atmosphere with our partner groups to get us moving in the right direction.

Number 2 is one of the most important things we can do for this district. Retiring the inherited $3.9 million deficit has been through the amazing work of senior staff and this board. I truly believe that working well with everyone, parents and students included, keeping up the great communication which has started, we will see things happening from the classroom up.
