It has been my pleasure for the past year to serve as the newest member of the Indiana State Board of Education.
I bring a fresh perspective to the board as an attorney and business executive who served as director of economic development under former Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson and president of the Indy Partnership, a regional economic development organization charged with recruiting new companies to our state.
To me, education policy is economic policy. Without world-class schools, we can’t attract top talent and jobs to Indiana. And as the father of an Indianapolis Public Schools student, I have a personal stake in making sure our schools are the best they can be.
