Election Over – Now The Work Begins

cat voter

Even a day after the polls closed, my Manx cat wears his Georgia Voter sticker with pride. And a laziness surpassing any instinct to groom.

I am honored to have been elected to represent Ward 1 on the Marietta Board of Education. It is the first elected office I have ever held. Before being reincarnated as an attorney (I had been very bad in a past life), I had been a school teacher for a number of years. I taught math and science at the Atlanta International School, the New Atlanta Jewish Community High School, the Native American Preparatory School near South San Ysidro, New Mexico, and the Flint Hill School in Fairfax, Virginia.

It is my intent to use this website and blog to stay in contact with the students, parents, teachers, and community which I serve. But, it is also my plan to blog about issues both directly and tangentially related to education as a means of engaging visitors, and as an exercise in keeping my own thinking current and sharp. Thus, while I live, work and play in Marietta, I hope to make this blog relevant and interesting to readers around Georgia, the US, and even the world. Education is an issue that is – or should be – important to everyone.


Running unopposed may not sharpen one’s campaigning skills, but it has its advantages.
