It’s unfortunate that this election for school board has gotten personal. My campaign has avoided personal attacks, even in the face of identity theft on twitter and extensive theft of yard signs. We remain committed to contrasting the differences between me and my opponent. The experience I have and the policy initiatives I would like to pursue for the children of the DISD differ markedly from my opponent.
Let’s be clear. My 14 years of experience as a parent of kids in the DISD brings to the board a valuable knowledge of what schools, teachers and kids face on a day-to-day basis. My professional experience as an engineer with an MBA and Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma brings a level of knowledge from a management and budgetary standpoint that is worthy and significant. Finally, my 17 years of commitment to our community through neighborhood policing and crime watch, CASA volunteering, school fairs, Leadership Dallas, classroom tutoring, and promoting science enrichment in elementary classrooms, shows how I have lived my values.
I have learned recently that my opponent is going to be a parent for the first time this summer. Parenting is a tough job and a big responsibility. I wish him and his family the best as they begin this journey.
I want to make a difference on the school board, for all of our children, including Mr. Faz’s child. Our children deserve a better education that provides the skills necessary to be a responsible, contributing adult. I ask for your vote and support in helping me gain this important seat on our school board.
