The Jones County School System has been a wonderful contributor to the unique educational needs of my children, and to the children throughout Jones County. As a parent, I appreciate the hard work of the teachers, bus drivers, school administrators, and school support staff who have touched the lives of my children.
It is time for me to give back. I would like to offer my skills, abilities, and talents to the already superb school system we have and help prepare our students for future success.
I am a parent, not a politician. I am first and foremost a husband, father, grandfather, and servant leader. This may be my first try at political office but I understand full well the need for committed citizens to go out into their communities and lend a helping hand. I am active in my church as well as my community.
If elected, my focus will be on enhancing the technological capabilities of the schools in District One and the system as a whole, helping to complete the Continuous Improvement Plan already approved for the system and maintaining a fiscally sound financial status for the school system, especially in these challenging economic times.
