I am excited to announce my intention to run for re-election to the Derry Township School Board for a full four-year term. Since being elected in November 2017 as a Derry Township School Director for a two-year term, it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve our community in this way. I ran for this seat originally with the hope of bringing a new voice and a fresh perspective to the governing body of our district. I feel I have accomplished this with transparency, passion for the role, and above all, integrity. It would be a privilege to be elected by Derry Township voters once again and have the opportunity to serve for a full term.
In December 2018, I became Vice President after being voted unanimously by the Board. I have served as Chair of the Communications & Community Engagement Standing Committee, Co-Chair of the HR Committee, and am also on the Finance and Athletics & Activities Committees. I’ve also represented the District as Co-Legislative Liaison to PSBA as well as a delegate on the board of the Trojan Foundation.
I’ve worked hard to learn the role of a School Board Director, to forge relationships with our administration, to understand our policies and budget, to be accessible to the residents of our district whom I serve on behalf of, and most importantly, to always make decisions that are in the best interest of all students, educators, and taxpayers above my own. Our current board works incredibly well with one another and I’m proud of the dynamic we share that is rooted in respect, even when we disagree.
