How do you plan on making Manchester Better?

Without a strong school system, Manchester will never gain the traction to make it a premier member of Hartford County.  The Manchester school system, despite a large budget and talented individuals, continues to rank at the bottom.  Improving the Manchester school system will attract talent to our city, groom our youth to become productive and valuable members of our local communities.


Goals in office: What do you want to accomplish or improve?

My goal is simple: commence action to make our school system a productive and attractive one.  For too long, Manchester’s school system has taken a back seat to competing suburbs.  It is time we level the playing field and provide our students with the opportunities they need and deserve.  The studies are clear, more money does not promote a better school system.  Our school system can be improved without becoming more expensive.
