I am honored to be running once again for RSD13 BOE. For the past several years, I have been on the BOE and acted as Treasurer. I’m currently the Controller for the largest behavioral health organization in the state, where I manage a $100M budget. By understanding how federal, state and local organizations work with budgeting in my day job, I am able to bring this expertise to the board level.
I hold an MBA and BA from SUNY Stony Brook. In addition, I volunteer with numerous national and local non-profit organizations that help special needs children. However, the most important thing is my children and their fellow learners in our beautiful town.
I have dedicated countless hours to helping improve our schools while remaining fiscally responsible. We have maintained the budget below the 2015-2016 level and continue to focus on improving test scores and curriculum. We responded promptly to ensure the safety of our learners during the COVID-19 breakout and continue to put safety as a top priority.
As we are faced with declining enrollment, budget constraints and facility needs, we need a team of board members who understand the process and how to continue to achieve success for our learners. I am proud to have been — and ask for your vote to continue to be — part of that team.
There is an enormous amount of work that needs to be accomplished and now more than ever we need experienced candidates. I am honored to offer my experience to RSD13 and I urge you to get out and vote on Nov. 2 for Geraci, Hicks, Moore and Taylor.
