What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children?
I would support the big brother and big sister program, I would support the after school programs and the many counseling services that are provided at this time.
What have you done to support children prior to this election?
As a retired teacher, coach and middle school principal, I have worked closely with our school social workers throughout my career. I have been involved in removing children from their unhealthy environment and sending some parents to court for child neglect. I have served on a local school board and along with the superintendent and other board members have set and implemented safety policies, such as school resource officer, securing entrance doors to school buildings.
What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected?
Well first, I think the Earned Income Tax Credit should be restored and as a teacher, my 40 years in education has always been about the children. Anything to do with the welfare of the child, I will support 100%.
