As we gear up for our School Board re-election campaign, I want to first thank everyone that supported our previous campaign. I remain humbled that you placed your faith in me to work on behalf of our students, families and staff.

 

So why am I running again? We’ve done a lot, but we have a ways to go and we must continue to build on the good work we’ve done. We need board members that truly believe in the importance of our public school system and we must reject those that wish to dismantle it.

 

I am that board member for District 6. I believe I owe that to my son, your children, and all our students, families and staff. Our students are the future and they deserve our best efforts. I ask for your support.

 

As I believe in the importance of showing you results, here are some of the issues I’ve worked on in my first term: 

  • Voted in support of the hiring of our New Superintendent, Dr. Robert Taylor.

  • Prioritized constituent services. There is nothing more important to me than responding to constituents. It’s important to be open and honest with our families regardless of the issues. 

  • Adoption of WCPSS's new 5-year strategic plan.

  • Leadership Role: I currently serve as chair of WCPSS Facilities committee and I serve as a member on the policy committee. 

  • Safety & Security: I’ve implemented regular safety and security updates to ensure progress is made at our schools. 

  • Naloxone policy: Implemented a new naloxone (opioid overdose medicine) and successfully pushed staff guarantees that we will have naloxone and related education in all schools. 

  • Successfully advocated for major renovations to be approved for multiple District 6 schools (Sanderson, Mount Vernon Middle School) and successfully advocated to allow turf fields when our HS have limited space (Broughton).

  • Advocated successfully to Raleigh City Council to help get raises for crossing guards. 

  • Advocated for and supported the Board’s Budget which included raises for all staff to help retain staff across the board and supported the reinstatement for Advanced Degree Pay for our educators who were left behind by the NCGA. 

  • Implemented Crown Act language in policy.

  • Started work on developing a sustainability policy that impacts all facets off the school system.

  • Adopted a Safe Gun Storage Resolution which supports our community efforts to keep guns out of the hands of children.

  • Pushed for new bus arrival communications with implementation slated for 2024-25.

  • Advocated and successfully secured funding for Women’s Flag Football to continue in 2024-25.

  • Pushed back against BOOK BANS and extremists who aim to tear down public education and bully our LGBTQ+ students and staff.

  • Advocated for and made the motion which authorizes an independent market pay study and an independent organizational structure study in response to community concerns on how we spend money.
