Most significant Public Service Accomplishment

 

My most significant public service accomplishment was my participation with the THS marching band acting as their volunteer EMT, Head Male Chaperone and in Operations for 4 years while my son attended high school. During this time I administered medical aid, supervision and help with operations to our town’s award winning band as they marched all over the country and as they became national champions and even marched in the Macy’s Day Parade!

 

Goals for my term

 

My main goal will be to look at the yearly budget in a holistic and fiscally responsible manner as a parent, teacher, administrator and finally as a Trumbull taxpayer. My hope would be to give back to a community that provided a world class education to both my children and to give the same opportunities and chances to future students of the Trumbull Public Schools.
