Taking the Oath of Office

On Wednesday evening, January 13, I was honored to be sworn into office on the Long Beach Unified School Board by Superintendent Chris Steinhauser. I’m grateful to the voters and to the many community members who welcomed me to this city, advised me during the campaign and honored me with election to the School Board.

My wife Dianne and my son Paul, friends, teachers, librarians, staff and administrators attended the ceremony. I thank them as well as my daughter Michelle, her husband Richard and many more family and friends for their support and generosity during the campaign.

Finally, I thank Superintendent Steinhauser and Board members Mary Stanton, President, Felton Williams, Vice President, David Barton and Jon Meyer who’ve been so welcoming and supportive. I look forward to serving the students, parents, teachers, administrators and staff of the Long Beach Unified School District. Together we can preserve and promote the quality of education for the children of our District even during these difficult economic times. I’m proud to be a part of this endeavor!
