I grew up in poverty and know first-hand the doors that education can open. I would not be where I am today without education. I am committed to working with students, educators, parents, and administrators to improve our education system so that our students can compete in a global economy and have to tools to successfully achieve their goals.
I believe that education is the cornerstone of our society. I am working on several education initiatives that will spur industry growth through workforce development and help lay the groundwork for our students to excel in the industries of tomorrow. My initiatives will spur the economic development needed to save and create jobs, and I look forward to continuing to push for education initiatives that help jumpstart the economy.
