I am running for one of the three open seats on the Barnegat Board of Education.  Since the focus of my campaign has been transparency, I feel it is only fair to tell you a bit about myself.

I am a lifelong resident of Barnegat Township and alumni of the Barnegat Township School District.  I have been married for 16 years; my wife and I are proud and involved parents of two students at the Horbelt Elementary School.  I coach for the Barnegat Soccer League as well as the Barnegat Boys and Girls Basketball Leagues and have for several years.  I earned my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Stockton University.  

My professional career has focused on operations and supply chain management.  This includes contract negotiations, legal, ethical, and fiscal compliance for a global supply base operating in dozens of countries across every time zone.  I have consulted and led strategic planning teams for Fortune 100 companies.  In my current role, I manage the manufacturing strategy and supply chain for a global semiconductor company.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

 I am responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars and have a large team of professionals reporting to me.  In my spare time. I like to consider myself a fisherman, though I will usually end up staring into the water thinking about my next goal.

 I will work diligently so every child has the opportunity for success while ensuring the district remains fiscally viable and uses all resources efficiently.  I am interested in hearing from all of you.  Please tell me what is bothering you, but also what is good about the school district. The more I hear from you, the more I can help make an impact.  

Please join me Sunday, November 3rd at Project Playground in Barnegat from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm.  We will have hot dogs and snacks, as well.  Please come by and meet your candidates.
