With 10 school-aged grandchildren of my own, it is of the utmost importance that we innovate and update our public schools. All public schools need to have access to high speed internet and technology, affordable pre-K and after-school programs, healthy lunches, and safe and secure spaces for our children to study. Our children are our future and our present, let's make sure they're prepared, together.
I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force security forces after high school in 1972, earned my bachelor’s degree, and was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1979. I flew B-52s, B-1Bs, and E-3s, in support of real-world contingency operations worldwide, with multiple deployments in the Persian Gulf and in South America flying counter-drug operations. Throughout my 30 plus years of active duty military service, I managed multiple organizations, personnel and contracts, multimillion-dollar budgets and multibillion-dollar capital assets. I was also a division chief at the Pentagon during 9/11 and deployed to Baghdad in 2004.
In 2008, after retiring from the military, I joined the U.S. Department of State and served two additional years in Iraq as the Deputy Team Leader of an Embedded Provincial Reconstruction Team in the Southern Baghdad Province. Where I directed and coordinated a multi-agency team efforts to restore the government of Iraq's capabilities.
After returning from Iraq, I obtained my real estate brokers license and founded a construction company.
We know that education is the foundation of a growing economy. Improving our public education system and retaining our college graduates will attract new businesses and bolster our economy. I will enable educators to improve the quality of our children's education while creating an atmosphere where teachers feel empowered and appreciated.
