Filing Day

Wednesday, January 17th I went to the Bolin Center in Lewisville to file to run for school board!  What a feeling!  It was scary and exciting all at once.

Now the wait begins… many others will get in the race?   We won’t know until the filing deadline, February 16th.

My “Why”

Many of you may wonder, WHY?? would you want to put yourself through the ordeal and stress of another campaign.

In 2015, I lost the election in Place 5 by a mere 259 votes.  Yes, it hurt!  And yes, I thought at the time that I would never put myself through that again.  But after I “got back out there” (and after many pints of Blue Bell) I was honestly shocked and humbled at how many people told me “you’ve got to run again!”  That gave me alot to think about.

Through the process of campaigning and all I was exposed to, I realized where my passions are!  At my church, Trietsch UMC, we are all strongly encouraged to serve not only where our talents are, but also where are passions are.  And if you can do both, then you and the areas where you serve, will be truly blessed!

I realized that my passion is working with the school district as a whole, not just in the schools where my children learn.  Over the past two years I have spent many hours LEARNING and listening to teachers, staff and district leadership.  I have attended many committee meetings, school board meetings.

Now, it is my time to ACT!  I am READY to RUN!
