Our school budget should always be based on the needs of our students. We need a much higher level of accountability for every tax dollar spent. I will work to make the CCPS budget more transparent and accountable to the public.

We can reduce expenditures by examining the value of each expense. Wasteful programs, such as unnecessary professional development, should be eliminated, not accepted without question. On your School Board, I will focus your tax dollars on student achievement, not bureaucratic advancement.

“The budget is not just a collection of numbers, but an expression of our values and aspirations” – Jacob Lew
