Why are you running for office?

We must continue to recruit new members and encourage current member to stay on with the union. I believe I possess the leadership qualities needed to move this agenda forward.

What are your goals?

I want to continue working with the HGEA Board of Directors to create the consistent message used to maintain and grow our membership. By working together with all the represented units we can show the value of being a member of HGEA and what the union can do for workers.
