Why I am Running
Never again shall we allow politicians to use our people, and especially our children, as publicly humiliated and abused pawns in a completely fraudulent “Pandemic Power Grab” that had no basis in reality, truth, or dignity. Making adults maintain “face covering” and “ANTI-social distancing” mandates that provided ABSOLUTELY ZERO MEDICAL PROTECTIVE BENEFITS whatsoever was disgraceful enough; making our CHILDREN endure that nonsense was Criminal. Never again.
Top 3 Priorities
Full parental control over all curriculums and policies involving their children.
Full accountability of the decisions involving taxpayer dollars , and the resultant outcomes in Educational Quality and graduate student success.
If federal dollars continue to mandate the teaching of such nonsense as “CRT” and “Gender Confusion Studies”, then I believe that we should choose total Education Independence and Truth over corrupt political manipulation no matter what the cost.
