I believe we are currently at an important point in time with regards to educating our youth. Education can be the great equalizer, under the appropriate conditions, with regards to changing the social and economic outlook of our community. Both the local and national demographic trends are changing; and I believe it is important to have representation of that reality at the decision-making level. I think it is equally important to have people of faith represented at this level to bear witness to youth that choosing Christ does not imply sacrificing temporal success. I wish to be a voice for positive change and therefore it is my intent to serve on a school board, diocesan, public, or otherwise.
