Putting My Life Experience
to Work For Others
.The parents of school-aged children are at an impasse in Deschutes County and around the nation. With schools closed for almost a year due COVID-19, our children have lost critical education and development—both socially and academically—that will be very difficult to make up. Parents have also struggled significantly, losing employment, progression in their careers and much-needed income in the midst of the pandemic—a tragic course that cannot continue.
It is my decision to run for the Bend-La Pine School Board to make a meaningful difference and bring our children away from the brink. I truly believe there are sensible solutions to the current challenges in education, and none so important as returning to consistent in-class learning for our children. I am not a politician. In fact, this is the first community role I have ever sought. But at this time, I know it is right for me to take on the vital cause of supporting our schools, our parents, their children and our future.
