I believe that while children make up approximately twenty-five (25%) of the general population, however they represent a hundred (100%) the future. We have great schools in Boone County , but education must remain a top priority. From early learning - to life long learning opportunities, we must ensure the resources for our children's future. They need and deserve strong teachers and strong schools. As your State Representative I committed to the continual improvement of our education system that will provide our children the opportunity they deserve to succeed in the future.
