Education PDF Print E-mail

I will use my background as an accountant to cut waste and inefficiency to ensure that we are protecting education funding.  We have to make sure that our children have the resources they need to reach their full potential.

We need comprehensive education reform so everyone has a chance to succeed and no one is left out. Rather than focusing on plans and program that have political subtext and loaded meanings, let's just fix the schools. Period.

I want to change the way we do things in Springfield and abandon the politics of the past.
