As the only Board member who voted against a property tax increase proposition on the ballot during the last election, people have wanted to know what my solution is to the serious financial crisis facing District 113A today.

During my school board meeting last night, I had that chance.

Read “The Right Solution” here…

Thank you for your support.

Comment Crushes Controversy August 21, 2009

Kudos to Mark Stern for reminding us all that our primary job is not to harass and intimidate others but to help children learn.

On election day in April 2009, four newcomers challenged four incumbents and won two seats on the District 113A grade school board. A political “witchhunt” followed. Formed was a new committee to research the campaign trail rumor mill.

Thanks to Mark Stern, his public comment during June’s school board meeting crushed the controversy. No follow-up “rumor mill” meeting has been set. Congratulations, Mark, for reaching the stars and making a difference!
