Education is a fundamental responsibility of county government, and every child deserves a great education.

As a trained educator and parent, I understand the importance of a great education. My own education opened many doors in my life and helped me become successful in business and life.

As County Executive, I have made education a major priority of my work. Over the past three years my Administration has successfully:

  • Launched the largest school construction effort in County history

  • Begun the process of constructing three all-new high schools for Crofton, Old Mill and Meade

  • Implemented three straight years of pay increases for teachers 

  • Budgeted four straight years of record education funding above State requirements

  • Bailed out the nearly bankrupt teacher health benefits program

  • Funded the $116 million Health Sciences Building at Anne Arundel Community College

  • Funded development of two new libraries

  • Advocated for an elected School Board
