I appreciate all of the support from both the community and the students that shared my passion to enhance the quality of education and opportunities that our students have to excel in their education. I am saddened by the divide that this election has caused in our community and the disrespectful nature in which some treated each other. I hope our community can come together and focus our attention on the most important thing in our district, our students.
Congratulations to Lori, Rick, and Sherry on their re-election. I trust that they will work to do what is right for our students, and I know that they understand the importance of academics in the district. I appreciate all of their advice and support throughout my campaign, and to other board members that were there for me as well.
I hope that our student voices can be heard and listened to by the board, and hope that respect is given to all, regardless of their personal opinions and beliefs. I also hope that I have inspired the younger generations to get involved in public office, our voices are important.
Again, thank you to all who supported me and I wish the three re-elected incumbents good luck over the next four years.
