Voter pamphlet omission
November 1, 2023
Gale Fiege was correct in asking about the failure to submit a profile for the Skagit voter pamphlet. I apologize for my failure to do so; I missed the deadline and I take responsibility for that. I did provide one when I first ran for a school board director position four years ago and should have this year.
On a related note, my opponent (Janie Beasley) and I both attended the candidate forum put on by the Skagit League of Women Voters. Their website: skagitlvw.org. Once you find the correct forum, Janie and I are after the Sedro Woolley and Mt. Vernon school board candidates. You may wish to scroll the video to the 1 hour 10 minute mark. Additionally, the Oct. 18 Weekly News ran a series of questions which Janie and I answered.
I hope you will consider the influence I have had over the past four years:
I worked to repair the relationship between the board and staff, as they had struggled with prior leadership.
I identified the need for a new math curriculum and supported funding to secure it.
I have listened intently to staff and community, in the interest of improvement for all students and staff.
