For many years, I’ve advocated for our kids. I’ve served on the Issaquah School District (ISD) Levy Development Committee, the ISD Financial Analysis Core Team, and as a Volunteers for Issaquah Schools board member. I’m proud of my work to secure funding for the ISD and I’m eager to do more. Our district’s decreased enrollment means less state funding. We must spend smarter, ensure the return on investment of existing programs, and reprioritize funding to ensure we’re meeting the needs of all our students. As an ISD director, I’ll strive to create clearer communication about how our educational programs are performing and provide insight into board decisions.


As the father of a student in our school district, I believe school board members should serve the community, first and foremost. I’ll work to foster a welcoming and inclusive learning community where all students, teachers, and families have a strong sense of belonging. I’ll be a vocal supporter for our children and families. I humbly ask for your vote.


Endorsements: Representatives Lisa Callan, Bill Ramos and Tana Senn, School Board Director Anne Moore, former ISD Superintendents Ron Thiele and Janet Barry, seven city council members and more. See for information.
