The Buffalo News invited school board candidates to provide a statement about why they are running for office.

-----

One reason I am running is to give every GI student the chance at a great education. Grand Island is a great place to raise a family and we have a top ten rated school system in WNY. In my first term the BOE has worked together to propose two capital projects totaling over $60 million. These two projects will fix problems in our schools and allow our staff to educate our students in a more productive way. I am proud to be a part of the BOE that has brought more transparency to the community and we will continue to do that. We have made great progress in the last few years working together with the elected officials of the town of Grand Island to make our community a better place to live.
