Former Superintendent, Peoria Unified School District

I invite you to join me in voting YES on the Peoria Unified School District override and bond. It has been my honor to work with the Peoria Unified School District for the past 30 years. As Superintendent, I was proud of the amazing work our dedicated staff and teachers did to educate our students. Their dedication has helped make Peoria Unified School District one of the top school districts in the state and we need to continue to support their efforts to educate a quality, competitive workforce.

YES votes on the override and bond will help ensure that school staff have the resources necessary to continue providing quality education to our students. The override will allow the district to attract and retain the best teachers. The bond will be used to keep our students safe and invest in technology.

Our schools have learned to “do more with less.” However, the funding provided by a voting YES on the override is absolutely critical to prevent future cuts to school budgets. Now is not the time to slash school budgets.

Please join me in voting YES on the override and bond.
