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
