Over the last 4 years I have had the privilege to represent District 1 of USD 251 School District. During these years we have made needed repairs to the Americus and Northern Heights buildings and grounds. Hiring an experienced man of character as the Superintendent. Began renovations for Preschool building in Americus. All while holding back raising taxes from the school district. It is my desire to continue the work started over the last 4 years, continuing the projects to renovate our facilities and educate our students in excellence.
The budget priorities for USD 251 is to continue to make the education of our students the highest priority:

a) Sustaining well paid and trained faculty

b) Provide students with curriculum and educational tools for their success

c) Continuing to maintain and improve the facilities

The second priority would be to make sure to keep the tax levy as low as possible. Since Education is the highest part of Lyon County’s property taxes, we must keep the patrons’ finances in mind.
Teaching our children, the basics and not making it political. Our children should be taught how to think logically, not what to think because of a political bent. It is extremely beneficial to teach our children in schools, face to face with educators and students unmasked. Not being used as pawns in a political battle.
