?It has been an honor to serve on the KISD School Board for the last 9 years and you, the voters, have given me the opportunity to help lead this district. I have sincerely appreciated your support over the years, and I’m asking for your vote again to re-elect myself to Place 4 of the KISD School Board. There have been many accomplishments in the district over the years, however, there are still many important issues facing the KISD School Board. I am proud to say that we have taken many steps to improve the quality of education for the students of KISD.”
“As a member of the KISD School Board, we have implemented many wonderful things over the years. We have given our teachers pay raises, improved school facilities, raised our test scores and continued with putting the interest of students, parents and teachers FIRST just to name a few. If re-elected to the School Board, I want to continue positive communication between the board and the community, improve technology on each school campus, build upon the programs that will keep our children safe in the schools and keep the district focused on the students as our community continues to grow.”
“I am asking you to allow me to continue to serve you on the KISD School Board by giving me your vote on May 11th, 2013.?
