“My wife and our four kids have lived in the school district for the last 16 years, with our last child graduating 2021. I have been involved as a coach, mentor and educator. I consider it an honor and privilege to serve our community and school district as a member of the Minnetonka School Board … to give back to a first class system that has given so much to my four Minnetonka graduates and countless others. I look forward to being a unifying force that will help continue the rich tradition and academic excellence we have enjoyed. I believe strongly in public education and want to continue to make this rich experience available to all students. I believe our students are the future of our country and our greatest resource and our ability to equip them well is paramount.”
