Our Platform

I am often asked variations of the question of, “Do you support …”

My response:

I support San Leandro school families.

I will work for equity and unity in our education system.

I will strive to end wasteful spending chasing new technology that goes unused.

I will advocate for direct area elections vs. district-wide elections (this will ensure your Trustee is elected by those that live in your area).

I will drive towards setting reasonable term limits for school board members. No more life long trustees who are in it for political gain and power.

I am comitted to uplifting the voices of our children, parents and guardians to ensure their voices are heard, respected and acted upon.

I will hold the district leadership accountable to those commitments.

Family and continuous learning are my core values. As a husband, father, veteran, and technologist I can bring a fresh perspective to a school board that needs to represent parents with school-age children today. My wife and I have three children in the San Leandro Unified School District starting from kindergarten through high school. Dedicated to public service, I have served on educational bodies such as the Local Control Accountability Plan, Citizen Board Oversight Committee, and John Muir Middle School Parent Teach Student Organization. I will help parents connect with teachers, connect teachers with the resources, and will direct the administration to be accessible and accountable to parents, students, and educators. We are living through unique times that require a candidate that knows the challenges our children face today. I’m not a professional politician. I am a parent who understands today’s challenges and not stuck on old solutions for past problems. I promise to bring my experience of being a parent of school-age children, a technologist, and a member of the San Leandro Unified School District to guide us into the future.
