The other day on the trail, Iwas specifically asked if I was for or against school consolidation. My answer was straight forward: I do not support consolidation. This will increase the number of students in each class, possibly reduce teacher positions, and cost millions of dollars that won't directly improve students' education. Furthermore, most of our neighbors and friends agree that keeping schools local protects our culture and promotes community.

The gentleman I was speaking with pointed out that he appreciated that I didn't talk around the question.

Make sure the people you vote for can stand behind their positions and be proud of their voting record.

So, I have received some feedback on the last article in the News and Advance. A couple of people questioned why I have not attended the school board meetings since choosing to run.

My response is that I am more concerned about learning the concerns of parents, teachers, and neighbors. My goal is to understand what our community wants to see and take that with me to the board. Once elected, my goal will be to continue to communicate so that I do not lose sight of the fact that elected officials are in a position to represent those that sent them. I have been encouraged by many who seem to agree with my goals as a board member.

10/24/2015

If elected, I will be open about the challenges of our current school facilities, but will oppose consolidation. Most of the people I spoke with in our district agree that our schools are the hubs of our community and that consolidation will take time and money away from educating our children. Also, if we consolidate into just two schools I believe we will create an unwanted teacher-student ratio and limit sports opportunities for the children.

If elected, I will also oppose the federal government continuing to force culture issues on our children. I think schools should focus their efforts on teaching our children math, science, reading, art, in a way that will encourage their critical thinking rather than indoctrinate their moral values.

If you elect me to the School Board, I will push to get an easily-understood and readily-available budget posted online.

I will work to make sure that our district understands where the funds come from and where I think we can improve. I hope that once we get a budget out there our friends and neighbors will begin to really understand what is going on with school finances. After the budget is available I will reach out and ask for feedback from our district on the budget and relay that information to both boards.

I think excellence in communication is worth 2 posts. I strongly believe that we must take steps to bridge the gap between the school board and county board.

I will push for different events and venues to allow all the members to come together and hopefully develop a rapport that will aid in decision making. Hopefully adding new venues and times will allow new ideas and information to be fully shared in the context of conversation and not just letters to the editor after the fact.

If elected I will focus on excellence in communication. I believe that if we can talk about it we can fix it.

I think it is the responsibility of the School Board Member to reach out and open dialogues with parents, educators, and the administration of his district. My plan is to use social media, email, and phone to get the message out about what the board is facing and what our children and teachers need. My hope is that by constantly communicating with my community that I can be a voice for what is expected from our community. I will also be able to relay timely information about challenges and votes that will come up at meetings.

For the next couple of weeks I will be posting, in brief, what I hope to accomplish as a member of the school board. I hope you find the information helpful as you make an informed decision.

I chose to run because it seemed to me that for years we had heard the same people say the same things, and we have not gotten different results. I became aware that the incumbent was elected unopposed last time, and he would be unopposed again this election. I decided that we need new choices if we are going to make changes. Also, I have been looking for a way to give back to our community to say thank you - it has embraced my family and my firm since I started.

My education and my experience representing children in my law practice have given me opportunities to work with educators and other support services, and to help children overcome obstacles so they can focus on their education.

I would be honored to have the chance to put my experience to work for your children as your newest member of the Campbell County School Board.

- J.D.

Even in the rain, our neighbors and friends care enough to talk about our kids and schools. It will be interesting to hit the trail during the hurricane.

You know your kids better than anybody - what could we do to enrich every school day?

I hit the road this AM, and I had the opportunity to speak with many people including teachers. I was asked if I was "pro-school" today, and the answer is certainly "yes." My daughter is in our local schools, my wife Cyndi and I went to public schools, and Cyndi is finishing her education degree this December. We're pro. :-)

Our citizens deserve to know where their education dollars go. I will fight to publish a clear, comprehensive school budget online, so Campbell County parents can have confidence in their investment.

Our kids' education is too important to be sidetracked by political battles between the School Board and Board of Supervisors. I'm invested - as a parent of a Brookville High student, I will work for common ground on behalf of our children.

We're live! Thanks for liking this page, and keep checking back for campaign updates, opportunities to meet me on the trail and answers to your education questions.
