Jon ran for school board and finished third out of four candidates in West Carrollton. Since last November, he has become very interested in learning about the district and although he fell one spot shy of being elected, he has worked to educate other concerned parents and citizens in an effort to improve the educational experiences for the kids. Jon is married with two children who attend West Carrollton schools and is determined to continue to seek fiscal alternatives to our budget woes rather than big cuts or levies. Jon is convinced that taking a closer look at where districts spend money as well as making reasonable concessions in the projected inscreses will go far in helping districts stem the tide of unpredictable state policies.
