Dear West Seattle Voters:
My youngest daughter just graduated from Chief Sealth International H.S. and my wife Liann and I couldn't be more proud. I'm inspired by the dedicated teachers and education my daughters received, and I want all Seattle children to have the same opportunities.
Putting Students First
I'm a 21-year resident of West Seattle, life-long Democrat, school and community volunteer, retired finance manager, and Fauntleroy Church leader where I helped build consensus for a co-location agreement with the YMCA to serve our community's youth. I am honored to serve as the current School Board President. My leadership and decision-making is guided by a simple, straight-forward question: What's in the best interest of the students?
Increased Access, Accountability, and Academic Rigor
We are making systemic changes to increase access, accountability, and academic rigor, and to foster greater family involvement - all in pursuit of significant gains in student achievement.
All of us working together
I take the public's trust and confidence very seriously and believe it's fundamental to delivering a quality education for every student in Seattle. Our work is far from finished. It takes all of us working together. It has been a great honor to represent you on the School Board and I respectfully ask for your vote.
