"I come from proud a family that has been involved with public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. We need to create more living wage jobs, improve our schools, and make public safety - especially getting guns off the streets, a top priority. With nearly a decade of government experience, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate the complicated governmental agencies, and get things done."
LIST OF ISSUES
Higher Pay for Teachers
I will work diligently for better contracts in an attempt to retain teachers in RPS. We can not afford to continue to lose good talent to the surrounding counties.
Build a new George Wythe High School
We must repair all schools as needed. Kids can not learn properly in old under serviced facilities. With the rising populations in the district building a new Gorge Wythe HS is a must make happen project.
Equality in discipline of students
There has to be a much more equal process to how kids are disciplined in our schools. Blacks and other minorities face much harsher punishment. We must address the school to prison pipe line. I will work to implement creative alternatives to harsh punishments for students that could save their academic careers.
Alternatives for students with IEP's
The kids with IEPs are not being dealt with appropriately, I will take a closer look at how they are being dealt with. My goal is to ensure that these kids are properly being prepared for academic success.
Close the disparity gap in sports
)We have 5 high school football teams. 2 are in one class & 2 in another & 1 in a class all by itself. This is a problem that must be addressed. All our high school should be on the same level.
