FIGHTING FOR LEE COUNTY'S STUDENTS
I am extremely excited to announce that I am officially a candidate for District 6 of the Lee County School Board. As someone who was born and raised right here in Southwest Florida, this community means everything to me and my family. And as someone who spent 20 years in the classroom as a teacher, I am very passionate about providing our children with a world class education that prepares them for success in college and the workforce.
Unfortunately, over the past few years it has been very disheartening to see the Lee County School District lose sight of what should be their top priority – educating our children. Infighting between board members and conflicts between the staff and the board has created an environment that completely disregards the will of the community and has become a destructive factor in our public school system. This is unacceptable in every way, and I am determined to make a difference.
I believe a conservative community like Lee County deserves conservative leadership on the school board, and I am ready to put my principles to work for you. I will be your representative and fight to ensure the policies put forth by the school district represent the values of Lee County. I will never cave to the pressures of liberal special interests that represent the voice of a vocal few at the expense of the vast majority. Parents and taxpayers, not bureaucrats, should be at the forefront of the decision-making process.
I also look forward to tackling the out of control and misguided spending within the district’s $2 billon budget. Gone will be the days of excessive salaries for administration; that money will go straight to the classrooms, providing our teachers and students with all the tools necessary to improve our education system. I will also fight to put an end to the half cent sales tax brought forth by the current board. This irresponsible tax was pushed on us with misinformation through a campaign of smoke and mirrors. Our schools never had a revenue problem, they had a self-created spending problem, which I will put an end to!
The road ahead is a long and difficult one. This is an endeavor I chose to embark upon only after many hours of prayers and conversations with my family. It is not something I can do on my own. I need the support of our community behind me and that starts with you. If you’re ready to bring constructive conservative change to the Lee County School Board, I ask that you join me and make this our journey to put our children first in Lee County.
