Why should constituents vote for you?
I have new fresh ideas, I am an experienced businessman, not a politician. The school board should not be political and it is very political.
What do you think is the biggest problem facing your district and how do you plan to address it?
Allocating funds where they are needed the most -- the goal is to give the children the best education possible.
In the last year, what is one issue that you think the sitting board members handled well and why?
I actually they handled everything pretty well- they just need some new ideas.
In the last year, what is one issue the board got wrong and what would you have done differently?
I think the petty bickering and distraction by John Briscoe holds them back from getting their jobs done.
