I am running for a second term on the Gloversville Enlarged School District Board of Education as we have unfinished business and wanted to share some details. I have two children in the district attending Kingsborough (the same elementary school I attended). I graduated from RPI with a B.S. in nuclear engineering and Pepperdine with an MBA. It is evident we suffer from problems including low morale as staff members speak about concerns not being heard and of a lack of direction in the district, poor results for our students (graduation rates in the low 50 percentile and now our district under state focus being rated in the bottom 10 percent), and parents/students concerns over bullying. All the while, school taxes become a crippling amount for families (spending has increased more than 71 percent in 10 years, while student population is down).
