Why are you seeking reelection?
I have a passionate commitment for public education and for the community of Burbank. The quality of our schools is one of the reasons why people choose to live in Burbank.
Over the last 3 ½ years that I have served on the Board of Education, our schools have continuously improved as measured by our standardized test scores. In spite of the budget crisis, we have maintained our programs while keeping the district fiscally sound. I wish to continue to serve to provide the strong leadership that we have already demonstrated to bring our district through this crisis.
