ON THE ISSUES

Student Voice

Our student voice has the power to create change in our county when we work together. I plan to work with student-run organizations and clubs, as well as advertise student advocacy opportunities. I also plan to work hard to make sure that the student body is aware of what is happening in the county and how to get involved. In addition to visiting every middle and high school, keeping students in the loop through online communication such as the SMOB minute, monthly live Q&A sessions, and social media posts.
