As a member of the school board I have been active in both school and community activities in order to better understand and serve the needs of the community. Because of my seventeen years of experience on the school board, my thirty- three years of participation in community activities in Perkins, and my thirty- seven years of experience as a self-employed building contractor, I believe that I can provide the skills and leadership necessary to assist P-T Schools with education and growth issues for the next five years.
