"I am a father of children who have graduated from the San Juan District, and my daughter is currently attending a school in the district. While there are many great things about the schools in San Juan, I have been very concerned with School Board policies that have taken parents out of decision making process on matters directly impacting our children. As an appointed member of the Citrus Heights Construction Board of Appeals, I can bring my experience to assist with school facility issues. I also am running to ensure every school is a safe place for students and faculty, and I want every child to have the resources available to rise to their full potential."
