I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who supported me in the recent Board of Education election. The outcome of that election was not what I had hoped for, but I know in my heart that during my service on the Board of Education I always did what I thought was best for all of the students and all of the staff.

Public service is difficult and many decisions are not popular, but I will cherish the time I served. I wish Sue Johnson, Jason Johnson and David Bass well. Serving on the board is very demanding but very rewarding.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have served the students and staff of Frederick County Public Schools. I would like to thank County Executive, Jan Gardner, for her trust in appointing me to the board, my dedicated campaign treasurer, Melanie Galloway, and my family for their support. I remain steadfastly dedicated to public education and will continue to work to improve education for students and teachers. Stay safe and many thanks.

Thank you for serving in this rather thankless job. As always in such a position, no matter what decision you make there will be a lot of people criticizing it. Oddly, I think that frees one up to do what they think is the right thing since you will be criticized just as roundly for anything you do!
