With a professional background in contracts, finance and marketing, Alex seeks to put his executive experience and team-building skills to work as a member of the CISD school board – helping to responsibly manage the district’s resources and maximize returns for all Dragons. His service in the United States Air Force instilled in him a deep commitment to service and leadership, which has uniquely qualified him to serve in this important role.
“I am dedicated to the success of CISD and if elected, I would be honored to serve as your next school board member for Place 6. With three children currently in our schools, I am acutely aware of the biggest issues and challenges facing our district and have a genuine commitment to making our CISD schools the very best they can be. I have the time, the energy, and the vision needed to be successful in this role, and I look forward to serving the families of our community as a school board member.”
