One of my proudest accomplishments was watching my four children graduate from Kent Public Schools. As a long time Kent resident and community volunteer, my family has thrived in this community. But I want to make sure all students and families can thrive.

Our district faces significant challenges. We need dedicated and committed leadership to see us through a pandemic, ensure our finances are stable and advocate for Kent families. If we work together, we can overcome these barriers and ensure every student has the chance to succeed.

I am not here for politics or maneuvering – our students will always come first. Their education and future success must always remain our top priority.

My community service: President of Kiwanis Kent, Board member of Kent community in schools, Board member of Children’s Therapy Center, Board member GKHS, Board member Green River College Foundation, member of city transportation board, tutoring Math to kids in KSD.

As a proud longtime resident of Kent, my goal for representing you as a board member is to listen to you, be transparent, represent you in my votes, advocate for our children, and hold our leadership accountable. My wife and I are raising our two daughters here in the Kent School District. My vote as a board member directly affects our children just as it does your kids and our community. We are all in this together.

I have no intention of voting with my emotions. My voting will be a direct reflection of the expectations of this community for all of our children. Your voices in this community will be represented to the best of my ability.

Parents do not have a union; we have a school board and they must reflect us all. Both of my parents were schoolteachers and I understand that we must be productive not destructive.

We need to hold our leaders accountable for the selection and evaluations of the superintendent. We need to be fiscally responsible with our budget. And most importantly; as a community it is our voices, strong beliefs and values that create what is possible for our kids.
