The quality of everyone's life can be improved through education. Therefore, our public schools are my number one priority. I was educated in the same eastern Wake public schools that my children now attend. No matter where you live, a quality education is the key to a better tomorrow. Our tax dollars should be spent wisely; although all areas were cut in this tough budget year, I voted to prevent such drastic cuts to public education.
My commitment to the public schools in District 39 did not just start upon my appointment. Instead, for years, I have worked to improve our local public schools as a member of numerous PTA's, a Communities in School mentor for several years at East Wake Middle School, and as a 10 year volunteer with the East Wake Education Foundation where I have severed as Vice-President for several years. That involvement is why I was endorsed by the NCAE and Wake NCAE in prior campaigns.
