Position Statement: I am running for the School Board to ensure a quality education for our children, fiscal responsibility for the District and strong collaboration between parents, teachers and community members. My family believes that serving our community is very important and a vital value to instill in our son. I have chosen to serve our community by supporting education and enrichment activities within Ballston Spa.
