Dear Neighbors and Community Members,
It is with a heavy heart that I announce my withdrawal from the 2020 HCPSS Board of Education Election, Effective immediately, May 14th, 2020.
I have learned a great many things on this brief journey. After reviewing my past, I have decided that I am not the best candidate for such a position. It is with sincerity that I apologize to any community member that has been offended by my transgressions. I am embarrassed by the FB posts that were mined from my account. I regret that I have lost the respect of many friends and community members during this process. It is my hope that over time I will be able to rebuild the trust and respect that has been lost during this campaign.
Please know that I have always had the best interests in mind for the children of Howard County. I intend to learn more about the individuals and groups that have been offended and look to the community for support in my personal growth.
There are two other fine candidates in D3. Please Vote for the individual that will best serve the needs of our most treasured asset, the students of HCPSS.
