Why should voters elect you?

"Because of my commitment to implement programs that will focus on students' academics and social needs so they would be productive, contributing citizens to society."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The need of an educational system preparing our youths to be effective in a multicultural, technological driven society. District 3 is plagued with low test scores, high suspension/dropout rates and an increase in criminal behavior committed by our youths. We must implement an educational structure that will help empower our youth, giving them the strength, hope and motivation to be successful citizens and tomorrow's leaders. We must teach our students to establish achievements, therefore producing a future that's not only beneficial to them and their perspective families but for society as a whole."
