      It has been my honor to serve as a Trustee on the Placer County Board of Education for 15 years. In that time, the Board has continued to promote accountability and fiscal responsibility. My years of experience as an accountant and as a public servant qualify me to continue as a member of this Board. I am very active in serving our community, including serving as treasurer of many nonprofit boards that improve our local, national, and international communities.
      My hard work in the community has led to being named Business of the Year, Outstanding Board Trustee and Educator of the Year. I am seeking re-election to continue my support and guidance of the high quality work performed by the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE). Our programs have been at the forefront of collaboration with business and trade organizations in providing valuable career technical education programs.
      PCOE has provided excellent support and assistance to our diverse elementary and secondary school districts, including fiscal oversight and technical training to implement changes mandated by the State and Federal governments. Our Board has worked hard to foster an educational environment that serves all of the districts in the County.
      We have an excellent program for early childhood education, as we have been very active in seeking additional funding to provide for this much needed investment in our young children. Creating an excellent learning environment for pre-school kids greatly enhances their chances of success in our competitive education settings.
      Due to California’s changes in how schools are funded, local Offices of Education must implement new funding methodology. As a trained Certified Public Accountant, I possess the fiscal skills to help lead our organization through the fiscal crises that most governmental agencies will or have been experiencing.
      Placer County educational rankings are always at or near the top of the State. We provide a quality educational experience for a huge majority of our students, and I wish to continue to serve on the PCOE Board to support the excellent educational system which I helped develop.
      If re-elected, I will continue to work hard for solutions. Superior education, safety, and the well-being of our students are my top priority.
