My Top 3 Priorities

  • Provide the resources necessary so every student and every educator can be successful.
  • Hire and maintain the best educational staff possible.
  • See to the successful completion of all of the projects promised during the general obligation bond campaign.



I spent 36 years in education as a classroom teacher, a site level administrator and a school district superintendent.  As a retiree, I have the good fortune of being on the adjunct faculty staff for the University of San Francisco teaching in the teacher credentialing program and Masters in Teaching program. I have served as a board member for the Boys'and Girls' Club, the YMCA and the Chamber of Commerce.  I have served on the Del Norte County First Five of California board of directors.  I have also been a member of Rotary International.  I have lived in Petaluma for 30 years and take a great deal of pride and what the community has done for our children and for what is possible in the future.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that all children can be successful. It migh take longer for some to achieve that success.  i believe that all children are gifted in their own right.  I believe that it is the role of our school system to afford every opportunity possible to our students so they can experience success through the options that will be available to them at the end of their PK-12 experience.
