After 18 years as a Greenacres city councilman, I will bring experience


in governing and education to the Palm Beach County School Board.

With your help we can ensure that the school board is making
children its first priority.

We can make sure that good teachers are fairly paid and poor teachers
are replaced.

We can demand that our schools are safe for teachers and children.

And I will ensure that the elected School Board sets policy not administrators.

Let's make Palm Beach County the best school district in Florida and one
of the best in the nation.
