Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
The legislature has been debating various ideas to allow towns to raise revenue locally through something other than property taxes. If you could ease your residents' property tax burden by adding another method of taxation, is there anything you might consider for your town?
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
What is the most pressing local issue facing your community and how would you solve it (within the capacity of the office for which you are running)?
With the state's ongoing budget crisis looming over the election, what are your plans for your community's budget? Is there anything you can do make your town less dependent on revenue from the state?
Why are you running for this office?
I am running for a second term on the Board of Education because; I care about children and families, I care about the educators, and I care about the future of Manchester Public Schools. My driving motivation is that we as Board Members can truly make positive affects in education and improve opportunities for all of our children, EVERY child in our community. Manchester's well-being, and our town's prosperity, depends on this.
