Write a few words about your work history, background.

A graduate of Texas A&M, I’ve been a home builder for 19 years. Thirteen of them as a small business owner.

Why did you register to run for office? Do you have a specific agenda?

My desire to serve on the Crosby School Board comes from one place; to support our children, our teachers, our administration and our community. With so many changes in our society, we need strong people on the board who will protect the vulnerable young minds of our students.

School safety is a major concern for students, parents and staff. What would you do differently from current district policies, if any?

Safety and security within the school are crucial. It should be a safe place for all students. Current policies need to be evaluated for their effectiveness. As for the changes I would like to see, a stronger presence of security guards and/or authoritative people.

Would you be in favor of the school marshal program provided training and the proper vetting process is carried out? Please explain why or why not.

I would support the School Marshal program with an absolute understanding that the proper training and verification process is continuously administered and evaluated. I believe this is another step in deferring a potential risk to any of our campuses in the district.

What will you do to represent all students in the district?

I will question, research and evaluate each topic presented to me in order to make an informed decision. I will serve with integrity.

What specific skills do you have that would improve your ability to serve on the school board?

As a small business owner, I realize the importance of financial monitoring. Every penny counts! My career as a custom home builder requires problem assessment several times a day. I know how to manage and bring together several personalities with different perspectives for a common goal.

If you seek to represent your community on the school board, how many board meetings have you attended in the past year? If you did not participate, why?

In the past year, I attended two board meetings. It showed me proper conduct and meeting etiquette.

Provide any information you feel is important to convey to voters.

As an elected member of your school board, you can count on my integrity. I know GOD has a plan for me. At this time in my life, I feel it is serving our community by protecting our children while encouraging their educational journey for a very successful future.
