"I will be a champion of fully funding and advocating for more funds for MPS at the state level. We need to stop the outflow of students from our schools and to achieve this I will focus on reaching out to the community to build strong ties and renew trust in our school district. I will lead by listening, improving engagement and decision-making so that students, families, and educators are at the center."
