Candidate promises to work hard

-A A +A



I am a candidate for the Pine Creek District seat on the Carroll County School Board.

I have lived in this area all my 57 years. Some may know me from my farming and cattle operations. Others may remember me from the fight against Duke Energy’s natural gas pipeline.

After watching our supervisors and school board members spend our money like there is no tomorrow and make several bad decisions, and after talking with school board employees who are afraid to speak up for themselves for fear of retaliation from administration, I decided it was time to step up to the plate again.

My qualifications are that I: own and operate three businesses in Carroll County, have common sense, listen with an open mind, know how to negotiate, attended Carroll schools for 12 years, have driven buses all over Carroll County as a substitute bus driver for five years combined, had two children graduate from Carroll schools and have five grandchildren attending now.

I will work hard for you, if elected.
