Why I am running --
I care about our children and our community. These are our children.
I decided I had to become more involved after recent events --- when the school district mishandled two sexual assaults at Palo Alto High School and subsequently made a mistake that cost us $6 million.
I’ve witnessed a breakdown in trust between the school district and the community. Students have been harmed, laws ignored, and tax dollars misspent. We deserve better.
Our students must come first. They must receive the protections they are entitled to under the law. Our tax dollars must be managed responsibly.
As a parent of two daughters, and as someone who has lived in Palo Alto for 25 years, I believe that our children deserve an excellent education in a school district that is fiscally responsible and abides by the law.
The events of the past few years highlight why change is needed on our school board and in our school district. I will help make that change, and I hope you’ll join me.
