I’m running because…

The current District 158 Board and Administration is largely disengaged from the community in most, if not all, matters.

This lack of leadership leads to very little positive change. Huntley’s test scores have been dropping, our rankings in the state have been dropping, and our taxes only continue to go up.

We need an administration and Board of Education who is focused on getting the best teachers for the district, personalizing education for each student, and balancing spending priorities to education first.

My involvement

I am not just getting involved. I have demonstrated interest in the Huntley Board of Education for the last several years, even before the pandemic. I have:

• Attended and spoken at board meetings consistently for two years
• Attended the district’s community engagement sessions
• Personally set up meetings with the administration about topics important to parents, teachers, and students of the district.

Getting to know me

We moved to Huntley District 158 because of the school systems reputation and programs. My wife and I have three children, two of which have graduated from HHS and one who is currently a freshman at the high school.

I strongly believe in the promise of a public education for all students.

I will listen and respond to your concerns. Together, we can make Huntley District 158 a true destination district for every student.

“Over the last two to three years, I have seen the district lose its focus on the core promise of All Students Always. Our students’ test scores have been dropping, teacher turnover has been rising as they search for better districts, and our taxes have also been rising and are being spent frivolously.”

More about me:

My background is in engineering and in general management. I have over 25 years of experience developing strong working cultures while working with leading technology and managing people. In my current role, I am responsible for a site in Loves Park, including all operations, finance, sales and management for the facility.

I have an innate ability for spotting questionable spending or business expenses, and I have spent a great deal of time digging into District 158’s financial records. There are so many areas where our tax dollars are consistently being wasted on unnecessary, agenda-driven programs.

Over 60% of your property taxes go to the school district, and the current board just voted for the highest property tax levy increase in the history of D158. I’m asking for your vote to establish a better-run and fiscally-conservative district.

Where do your taxes go?

D158 takes the lion’s share of your property taxes. Look your bill up at this link (search first and last name.) Are you happy with how your money is being spent?
