Our votes are public record, but the deliberations preceding the vote are not recorded in the meeting minutes.  Occasionally, a sound bite may be recorded in the newspaper account, or in a TV interview, but this is rare.  Sometimes, the discussion is held in closed-session, and cannot be disclosed.  Most votes are easy or clear-cut, but occasionally we have to vote on controversial issues.  I put together a page that  contain a list of my votes and the rationale behind them.

I Value Your Opinion

Putting Students FIRST!

I have tirelessly worked over the last two years to improve the Tehachapi Unified School District. 

I’ve done my best to represent all students and families in the district.  I am concerned with any and all topics, when it comes to the educational environment of our schools.  As a board member, I cannot solve any problem on my own, but I can bring the issue to the attention of people who will do their best to remedy the situation.  Please, don’t hesitate to contact me, for any reason.
