With Election Day this Tuesday, I feel it is important for the citizens in Berryville to be informed that you have two distinct choices in this election to represent your voice for the next four years. You can continue to accept the same problems and issues that we have had in recent years, or you can vote for change and new leadership to improve our schools.
I have spent the last four months meeting with Berryville residents and listening to your concerns about the low test scores, the constant bickering on the School Board, low morale among school staff, and the lack of viable vocational career programs currently offered. These are just a few of the concerns the citizens of Berryville have shared with me in meetings with them in their homes.
MY Promise to You:
* I will work with the Board to improve academics.
* I will offer you responsive leadership.
* I will focus on improving and expanding our vocational programs.
* I will work on improving the reputation of our school system.
* I will always do what is in the best interests of our students.
My background in public education gives me the insight that I need to fully understand the complexities of our schools, but also the great appreciation I have for the teachers and administration. My experience teaching at Lord Fairfax Community College and over thirty years experience in business and management has shown me the importance of working with people in a environment where there is trust and respect for all opinions and the need for all voices to be heard.
There are times when continuity is not a good thing, and change is necessary to move forward and create a better learning environment for our children. I believe that time is now, and you have a clear choice here between me and my opponent.
I ask for your vote on Tuesday and promise you that your voices will be heard, and I will always do what is best for our children.
