Thank you for your interest in my campaign to represent the students, families, and schools in District G.

I want to earn your trust, and your vote. I know that by working together as a community, we can make our schools great for all our children.
Everything we want for our families, everything we want Nevada to be, depends on educating our children. I have a plan to do that well. My plan is summarized in three words:
TEACHERS are the most important people parents count on to help educate our children. We need to ensure that our children are taught by the best. I will help make Clark County a great place to be a great teacher.
TRANSPARENCY means opening up the workings of the school district to the public eye. I will help redirect resources to our schools, where our children are.
TODAY is when change must happen for our children. I will help eliminate bureaucracy that gets in the way of achieving safe, first-class schools for our children. I will work hard from day one, for the future of our families and for the future of Nevada.
Teachers, Transparency, and Today - these centers of positive change will result in schools we can count on for what we want for our children, our families, and Nevada.
We need our children to have great schools, because public education is vital to the success of our community, our state, our nation, and our world.
Education is my passion, and you can count on me to work hard and engage our community in the issues that matter most for our children.
I will listen to the concerns and ideas of students, parents, teachers and other educators, and community members, and together we will engage in solutions and positive change.
I will always work hard to represent the best interests of you, your family, and our community.
