Regretfully I must suspend my campaign for the Fayette County Board of Education. My reasons include but are not limited to the current situation with COVID-19. In addition to the fact that signature collection has become vastly more difficult, my attention for the last week and foreseeable future has been and will be focused on assisting my wife with our children’s digital learning. Family comes first.
I have been greatly moved by the outpouring of support for my short-lived campaign. I am glad that I have had the opportunity to learn first hand about the process of qualifying for a political office as an independent candidate, and I hope to use my new knowledge in the future, not just for myself but for any other citizen who may bravely choose to run, whether independent or otherwise. I plan to remain, as I have been for some time now, vocal about local issues, particularly involving the school board. It remains my goal to help others in the community become more aware and active.
Thank you and God bless,
