Welcome To Your Website
I want to thank everybody who supported me for the School Board. Democrats were over-joyed with their victories in Saint Paul, with the exception of Tom Goldstein who was forced off the School Board.
The election turnout, though, was the worst since 1993, with half as many turning out to vote for the general election. This is the first sign that people are tired of politics and policies as usual.
This website will be transformed soon to support the efforts of the St. Paul Coalition for School Reform. A number of new initiatives are under development now to fast track school reform and eliminate the achievement gap. As plans are finalized and ready to be publicized, this site will be the hub for the grass-roots efforts for school reform, as parents and teachers take back our schools.
Thank you again, and God Bless.
