We did it!

We did it! Thanks to your support and all of our hard work, we won a seat on the Saugus District Board of Trustees.

My heartfelt gratitude extends to all of you who donated, endorsed, walked, called, and shared our message throughout social media and in person, and offered your encouragement and prayers and well wishes.  I couldn't have done this without you! 

I'd like to also thank my opponent, Bruce Fox, for putting himself forward to serve and for running a clean and positive campaign. This election cycle brought significant divisiveness and vitriol but I'm proud that Bruce and I remained focused on the issues.

I'm thrilled to resume working hard for Saugus families, teachers, and staff, in this new way.  

If you're local, I'd love to have you join us for the swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, at 7:30 PM at the District Office in Valencia.

Again, thank you for your support!
