The clear choice for Board of Education in District 6

Workshop Blur.jpg

Dear Neighbor,

My sincere thanks to you and so many others for supporting my first campaign to represent District 6 on our county’s Board of Education. It has been my honor serving the residents of this district, and I look forward to continuing my work in another term advocating for accountability, equity, and transparency in Anne Arundel County Public Schools. 

I am extremely proud of my accomplishments working with like-minded members of the board. In the past four years, we have been able to increase teacher and staff compensation to make AACPS more competitive with surrounding school districts, moved school start times to new, healthier hours, and added counselors, social workers, and other mental health support staff positions.

I began my tenure on the board as the chair of the Policy Committee, and I am particularly proud of my work to pass the first LGBTQ+ Student Protection Policy in the state of Maryland. As BOE President, I led the board through the hiring process to select Dr. Mark Bedell as AACPS’ new superintendent.

There is much more work to do to give our students the future they deserve. Experienced leadership on the Board of Education is necessary for tackling difficult and, sometimes controversial, issues that require bold action.

  Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and be well.
