After many days of continued ballot counting, I am now confident of my lead and ready to celebrate and get to work. I am humbled by the voters’ confidence, and I am excited about the opportunity to represent Snoqualmie and the entire district on the school board.
Now the real work begins. We have some significant challenges in the district, and we have some difficult decisions to make. During this work, I promise you that I will keep an open door, a listening ear, and a respectful demeanor. I will continue to use a blog and emails to keep all of you up to date on school board topics and meetings, and I look forward to you keeping me apprised of your opinions, questions, and concerns. It is a two way street. I also would love to utilize many of you to research issues and to help me explore decisions and alternatives during my four year school board term.
Even though I won’t be officially sworn in until January 12, I am starting work now. I am attending a district meeting on STEM today, and I will be attending a four day Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) annual conference in Bellevue starting Thursday. I look forward to the opportunity for this education as well as the ability to network with other school board directors from across the state.
Thank you again for your help in this successful effort.
