"I will always listen and communicate with respect. I will advocate for our public schools and their continued growth. I will make decisions in the best interest of the community and what continues to make us a high quality district."
"I believe School Boards should focus on what is good for the students, the teachers and the school system and not be a place where political ideologies influence decisions and further divide our community. At the end of the day, I believe all of us want the same things for our children: a learning environment where all students feel safe, valued and respected; a challenging curriculum that prepares our children to be productive citizens and trusted professionals to guide them through their educational experience."
"I will protect public education from groups and individuals that are fighting to remove curriculum, restrict teachers from teaching and wishing to divert precious funding to charter schools. I belong to the majority in our county that fully trust our education professionals to do their job and want to fight to protect their right to do so."
"Every morning my child hops out of the car and enters his school, I'm confident that he will learn in a safe environment. That peace of mind is priceless, but we take it for granted. I will work with board members, not against them. The duties of a school board member as enumerated by the Tennessee School Board Association are limited in scope. My goal will be to stay within those lines when conducting board business. In a nutshell, my goal is to make School Boards boring again."
"I'm one of the more experienced voices on the Board and experienced leadership that understand the role of the Board and school operations is needed now more than ever as public education in our state is under increasing attack."
"I am passionate about quality public education for all students in our county. I am also passionate about the work of our excellent education professionals who have built and continue to build on our tradition of success. I will continue to work tirelessly for WCS and the Williamson County community."
