An effective trustee must understand early childhood education, technical education, professional development, special education, school safety, technology services, financial oversight and more. My years of experience with education, management and advocacy make me ideally suited to the role of trustee.
I have been an elementary school and high school teacher, a university lecturer, and a volunteer for multiple nonprofits focusing on youth and education. As a businessman and senior director for a large international company, I managed multi-million dollar budgets and staff around the world.
The key role of a Ventura County Board of Education member is to advocate for better funding for education for all of our children. We want our children to have the resources needed to pursue their dreams. The VC Board of Education governs the organization which addresses many educational challenges: offering technical courses, special education to our most vulnerable children, overseeing charter schools and professional development courses for our county's teachers. The board champions sufficient and effective funding so our kids can pursue college and careers. We need a leader with a track record for District 2.
