I hope that you and yours have enjoyed these last couple of weeks. Whatever your religious persuasion–or lack of it–the holiday season is always a special time of year. The end of the holidays also means that I’m resuming the conversations I’ve been having with my supporters.
This week, I’ll answer one of those questions that I get from the people I meet with. Phrased in different ways, that question amounts to: “Just what does the State Board of Education do?”
For the last several weeks I’ve been sending campaign updates to friends such as you who have asked to receive them. I think these will continue to be an important way for us to keep in touch through this long campaign.
At this time of year, though, we should all be thinking about the things that make these holidays so special: faith, family, and friends. So in this update, let me just thank you for your continued support and wish you a blessed time of peace and joy at this special time of year. I’ll take a break myself and look forward to resuming our communications in 2016.

The question I get more than any other is: “Just where is State Board of Education District 11?” Continue reading A Look at District 11
After months of mulling it over, I announced my candidacy for the Ohio Board of Education to NEOEA’s Representative Assembly delegates on November 7. Continue reading First Announcement
