What is the primary reason you are running for this office? My only agenda in running for the board seat was to be an independent thinker and not serve any special interest group, so that all of the students are represented.
What will your single most important priority be if you get elected? My top priority will be to find a way to get more parents involved in their children's education. The schools can only do so much, it takes consistent parent involvement to make a succesful student.
What sets you apart from the other candidates? I have no single agenda; meaning, I am doing this because I feel I can represent the interests of the students, without setting any one group of students apart from another. I have lived in Riverbank all of my life, went through Riverbank schools and have been involved in the community. I care about the kids here and want the best possible education for them.
