I ASKED THE CANDIDATES FOR EVERY RACE IN EVERY DISTRICT ACROSS THE CITY, "WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU DO NOT WIN YOUR RACE ON NOVEMBER 8TH?"
"Nothing will change in what I am doing today, because I will continue to attend the school board meetings, council meetings, and speaking on behalf of parents and teachers. I am a parent who have two small boys in Richmond Public Schools. I graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and several of Richmond Colleges. I retired from the military two years ago, and my focus is to ensure our children receive quality education. This is not a stepping stone for political gain, but a personal investment in our children's education.
I will continue to work with the Richmond Public Schools as I have for the last 7 years. I have been a Carver Promise Mentor for 6 years, and I was a candidate in the 2012 election. Today, I do not see myself with a different agenda, but a MISSION. As you can see an election does not change my passion for Richmond Public Schools. I am a living example, who has walked in the same shoes as these children, and I will not give up on them. It is my time to give back, because I know Education = Success."
