The seven candidates running for Liverpool school board provided The Review with answers to several questions. The election will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday May 15 at the Liverpool Public Library, Liverpool High School, Chestnut Hill Middle School, Nate Perry Elementary School and the Soule Road complex.
Husband, Nick; children, Angelo and Jennifer. I work as an office manager for a local ophthalmologist. I have lived in Liverpool all of my life. I have been a school board member for the past three years.
Why are you running for school board?
I am running for another term for the same reason I ran originally, to bring balanced representation to the board.
What challenges does the district face and how will you address them as a board member?
The challenges we are facing are too numerous to detail here. Suffice to say that I will continue to do my best to research issues in order to make an informed decision when I vote.
What will you do as a board member to ensure that the services and education received by Liverpool students continues to improve while maintaining a fiscally responsible budget?
We have a financial responsibility to the community to minimize the tax impact and at the same time, deliver the best education possible for the children of our community. We have an excellent business manager in Katie Phillips, who does an outstanding job in a very trying fiscal climate.
Is there anything else you would like to mention, either about your candidacy or the district itself?
It has been an honor to serve the community as a school board member for the past three years. If re-elected, I will continue to strive to do what is best for the children of our district.
