In my orthodontic practice I have improved thousands of
kids' smiles and have always put the best interest of each
child first. Not every child needs braces but every child
deserves and is entitled to the best education in a safe and
encouraging environment. The school's responsibility is
to provide this so each child will be prepared for whatever
future they decide.
I have three daughters, Michelle, Jessica, and Rebecca, and all are in the public
schools or have completed their education there. They have all benefited from
an excellent education in West Bloomfield schools, and I want to ensure that for
each of your children.
Education will always be a priority with me, having begun in early childhood,
being the son of a teacher. In the past I have donated funds to West Bloomfield
and other schools and now I want to continue donating my time. I promise to do
the best job I can and will always be accessible and approachable. My experience
with running a small business will help with fiscal responsibility, problem solving,
and giving taxpayers and citizens your fair dollars' worth in education.
I assure you that I will "listen" to the residents. I have children in our school
district, reside here, and set as a priority making our schools superior in
performance and reputation, and therefore helping make West Bloomfield
desirable and retaining our property values.
I hope that you will remember to vote Tuesday, May 8, 2007 and that you allow
me to represent your bests interests. Your vote will make a difference.
