Candidate Statement/Platform

Summary

This statement covers my priorities and the key issues I plan to tackle as a member of the Pleasanton school board.

Pleasanton schools are outstanding, but we have lost our way in many respects.

We must stop the revolving door of principals, staff and District office personnel. We must make a concerted effort to help our underserved students be more successful. All voices must be heard and respected. The School Board must be fiscally responsible and transparent about all decisions.

We must encourage staff development to prepare our teachers for 21st-century learning. Our infrastructure must be upgraded to accommodate cutting-edge modes of teaching. I will seek creative funding to improve technology.

I have 40-plus years of experience as a teacher and principal, all in the Pleasanton School District. I am eager to transfer my skills to the school board to improve our District.

I would bring a unique view to the School Board from having served at most Pleasanton schools. I have a solid reputation of successfully collaborating with all stakeholders to advance student performance and find equitable solutions that best serve all students.

Trust must be restored among all community members and the District. Everyone must be treated with civility and respect.

Many voters have expressed their frustration that School Board members do not listen to them or are not receptive to a healthy discussion of issues. I would welcome and consider ideas to improve our schools and help me make fully informed decisions.

I pledge to be transparent and continue my long history of actively communicating and collaborating with all stakeholders through outreach, public forums and school-site visits.

I have multiple endorsements from top agencies and leaders in our community, including the Chamber of Commerce, mayor, city council members, educators and many more.

I am the best prepared and qualified candidate to be your next School Board trustee. I would be honored to have your vote.
