About Me

- fulfilling platform promises - update June 2

A. June 9th Board meeting "School Board Facilities Committee" Y-N vote - Agenda item.
B. I've been encouraging the Whisman neighborhood area to organize to help reopen their elementary school.  MV Voice "Reopen Whisman School?"
C. under study

A.  Board legislative advisory committees should be established for Budget, Compensation, and Facilities* 
  planning (this is *different from  the two legally required spending review committees)
B.  Public involvement in Board decisions is insufficient for this community: NEEDS IMPROVEMENT.
C. Middle school performance (standard tests) is below similar schools (Graham) and NEEDS ATTENTION.

Personal: I've been recently diagnosed with a very rare nasal cancer - have undergone successful surgery (yeah Kaiser), and will be suffering through the later part of the summer with Radiation Therapy (RT).  I've told my colleagues at the District that there is a small chance I'd resign in the Fall.
