Have you ever been convicted or charged with a crime other than a minor traffic violation? No
Have you or a business you owned or had principal interest in ever filed bankruptcy? No What is the primary reason you are running for this office? To provide knowledge and leadership to help the district provide the best education, through business and fiscal guidance.
What will your single most important priority be if you get elected? To ensure the fiscal needs of the district are kept within their means.
What sets you apart from the other candidates? I have been in the education facility arena for the last 10 years. I have been involved in the construction of nine different schools. That coupled with me being on the school board and previously working for Gustine and another district I have a pretty good idea of the money and board process. This knowledge I think will help Gustine Unified School District improve the education available for our students.
