Meet Justin

- Vested Interest in our School System -

- Proven Community Leadership -

- Committed to Excellence -

- Responsible, Effective Decision Making -

I am excited to run for an open seat on the Dorchester District 2 School Board. As the parent of two children in our school system, I will work tirelessly on behalf of our students. As the husband of an educator in District 2, I will work relentlessly on behalf of our teachers. As a tax-paying citizen of our rapidly expanding county, I will work diligently on behalf of our community.

Why are you running for Dorchester District 2 School Board?

I want to serve our community and be a strong voice for the students, parents, and teachers of District 2. There is nothing more important to me than the future of our children’s education, and I want to have a positive, long lasting impact to ensure we are headed in the right direction. As Dorchester County and surrounding areas continue to grow, the District 2 School Board must make sound, strategic decisions for today, tomorrow, and years to come. As a proven leader and experienced decision maker, I will add immediate value to our school board.
