The Plainedge School District has continued to thrive for as long as I have been a resident.  The main issue facing our schools is to sustain the quality of the educational programs whilst maintaining appropriate funding and or taxes for all community members. 

As a board member, it will be a responsibility of my position to ensure we are fiscally responsible, generate the best programs for all children, and focus on competing for excellence with our neighboring communities and/or school districts.  The goal of school boards is to meet the varying needs of the community and to listen, support, and maintain sound decision-making policies for the betterment of student achievement at all levels.  As a newly elected board member, it will be a privilege to serve the Plainedge Community.
