About me



I will be an independent voice on the School Board - I have NOT and will NOT accept campaign contributions.

I am a long time Newark resident with a strong interest in seeing that Newark schools are worthy of our children.

I have devoted myself to Newark students by guiding the Newark Educational Foundation to secure corporate support for education in Newark. I have 30 years of professional experience including 16 years leading economic development and planning for Newark and other cities. I am the proud father of two.
-Past President and life member of Newark Optimist Club.
-Rotary Club Member and past Youth Services Chair.

I will bring my professionalism, integrity, and vision to the Newark School Board. The School Board should be focused on providing policy direction, hiring qualified staff and holding staff accountable.

Newark Schools can and should be world class educational institutions, I will constantly strive to see that the schools provide a challenging and welcoming learning environment to all students no matter their background or resources.

First and foremost, Education must be safe for our students and staff. We must provide our students with the tools, including internet access, they need to be successful in this challenging time.

Thank you for your support, I look forward to serving you

我将会把我的专业精神、气节和远见带到纽瓦克教育董事会。教育董事会应着重于为学校提供政策指导,聘用优质合格的员工并保证员工的工作质量。

纽瓦克的学校有能力并且应当成为世界级的教育机构。我将不懈努力,让学校成为一个对不管来自于任何背景和资源的学生都同样具有挑战性、热情友好的学习环境。

而最重要的是,教育必须以学生和员工的安全为先。我们必须为他们提供能在这个具有挑战性的时代取得成功的渠道,包括实现互联网条件。

Program


  • Reopen Schools Safely: Respond to COVID-19 by utilizing science and health expertise to return students and teachers to school safely.
  • Focus on Equity:   All students must be given the tools and encouragement to succeed.
  • Strengthen Board Professionalism: The Board must hire qualified staff and then support them and hold them accountable.
  • Promote fiscal responsibility: One time money should not be used for ongoing programs. Beware of short term grants that create ongoing expenses.
  • Bring Educational Innovations to Newark Unified: Language Immersion programs-Spanish and Mandarin- and an International Baccalaureate program must be implemented. Initiatives focused on science and creative arts should be pursued.  Corporate donors can help if we provide a clear vision.
  • Retain Great Teachers and Staff: Teachers and staff are our key resources they need to be supported and rewarded.
  • Plan for Facilities: The assessment of facility needs must include robust community involvement.  The opportunity for a free school site in Southwest Newark must not be squandered.
  • Celebrate Our Achievements: Enrollment will steadily grow if we tell our story to the Community.  The Board should be ambassadors.
