I’m Running for Portland Public School Board!


Let’s catch up!

I have important news to share -- I’m running for a seat on the Portland School Board!

I know that public schools can launch students into rewarding, successful lives. I’ve also seen that potential wasted and believe it’s time for me to step up. It’s time we make sure every single kid succeeds.

The most recent state audit revealed that PPS is not measuring up. PPS has failed to ensure that taxpayers’ dollars deliver the outcomes we all agree matter. Bond projects are $180 million over budget and behind schedule. Every year, PPS spends almost $700 million running our schools and yet far too many kids don’t get what they need to succeed, failing to graduate on time or ever.

It’s time to change this and we can do it!

This race will be competitive and I need your help. How can you do that, you might ask?

Three ways will really make a difference:

  1. Make a contribution here.

  2. Add your name to my list of supporters.

  3. Volunteer to reach out to your neighbors, walk with me to knock on doors, host a house party, make calls, and much more.

We have exciting work to do together.
