I am a wife, a mother of seven young adult children, and a grandmother of three, so far <3 . An accountant by trade and a former Board of Education Trustee for the Wappingers Central School District in Dutchess County NY, I have been acutely aware of and active in exposing and opposing governmental overreach into our children's education system since 2013.
As parents, we have the right and responsibility as primary educators of our children. We pay school taxes to our local districts and are entitled to a voice in the policy setting process and to seats at the policy setting table. Over recent years, indeed, decades, our voices have been demonized and purged from the processes and decisions which affect our own children's everyday lives and the decision making processes have been moved from our local communities to our state capitols and even to the federal government. Our children are ours to raise by God's ordination and the federal and state governments have no business inserting themselves between us and our precious children via our local education systems. And yet that is exactly what they have done.
I am committed to working in any and every way possible to remove the intruders and to protect our children from the political and financial power class which are currently using them as bait in their dangerous games of greed and lust for power. I am happy to be working with the No Left Turn in Education organization in their efforts to protect children and parental rights from radical education policies and all forms of governmental overreach into our children's everyday lives.
