Allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to the voters of the Mora Independent School District for electing me to an unprecedented fifth term to the Board of Education. It has been an honor, a privilege and a joy to serve in this capacity for 16 years and I will continue to do my best to validate those who believe in my capabilities and who have entrusted me with this awesome responsibility.
I would like to congratulate all Mora School Board candidates. It takes a lot of courage to put your name on a ballot and requires a lot of time and energy to campaign for public office. I look forward with great anticipation to another four years of working on behalf of students, teachers and staff in the best interests of our district.
The voters have made it clear that they care about accountability and transparency. There are tough decisions ahead of us, but together we can make a positive difference. As I mentioned in the public forum: although our challenges are great, so are our strengths.
I want to especially thank the many supporters who showed up to vote on a cold and icy day in the Mora Valley. I am humbled that you continue to put your trust and faith in me, and I will never take that for granted.
Finally, I want to thank my immediate family and friends. Your passion, energy, and dedication brought this victory home.
