Board of Education Candidate
Although there are three Board of Education terms expiring June 30, 2017, only one person has declared their candidacy. All seats are for three-year terms. The Board of Education serves without pay.
My wife Barbara and I have lived in the district our entire lives. We have four children who have all attended Brittonkill. They have enjoyed many of the opportunities that our district has to offer. I have been part of the school board for six years. My goal of being on the school board is to continue to help the district provide better opportunities for all of the children in the district, academically, socially, athletically, extracurricular, or any services we provide, while also being fiscally responsible to the tax payers of the district.
