I wish to thank the voters for giving me the opportunity to serve them and their children as a member of the Sunnyside School Board. There were so many people that offered their time, their resources and their encouragement along the way. Thank you for believing in me. For this I am truly grateful.
Once the outcome of our school board race was known, my opponent, Leroy Werkhoven, graciously called to congratulate me on my election. He and I share a passion for education, and for the future of our children and community. I thank him for a clean, hard fought campaign.
In these tough economic times I will work to use our financial resources carefully. I promise to be accessible to staff, parents and students, and to be accountable to the public. Above all, I will work with district personnel and families to help Sunnyside public education be the best it can be.
