Reason for becoming a school board member: "The child of two educators, I was raised to believe there is no substitute for a high-quality public education. We live in Falls Church because my wife and I wanted our kids receive the world-class education our City is known for. As a member of the School Board, I want to ensure that all of our children in Falls Church receive the high-quality, competitive K-12 education necessary to succeed in both school and life."
