LIVINGSTON, NJ - It is with great pride that I announce I am seeking re-election to the Livingston Board of Education. I have had the distinct honor of serving the community during the past three and a half years, and it has been immeasurably rewarding to work alongside my fellow Board members and Livingston Public Schools superintendent and staff.
As a graduate of LHS, a father of three children (a fifth-grader and a first-grader at Harrison School, and a nine-month-old), and a school administrator, my concern for the academic and personal growth of every student guides me and is a part of my life on a daily basis. Moreover, my professional experience and my personal interest in our children’s experiences provide me with a unique perspective that I will continue to bring to my work on the Board. As a Board member, one must make policy decisions in the best interests of all children, while doing so in an educationally and fiscally responsible manner. With the changes in leadership, my continuing role with our new Superintendent and three new Board members would offer continuity for our school community’s important work together. Setting goals for the new Superintendent and putting a strategic plan in place will ensure that all of our students will continue to have the opportunity to succeed in LPS and beyond.
I am proud of what our schools offer because of the dedication of our administrators, teachers, and staff, the interest of our parents and children in their education, and the support of a community that continues to put education first. However, I believe that the success of each student equals success for all Livingston residents. As such, I would like to work with you to continue to grow and improve so that we can ensure success for all.
