I was born and raised in Ridgefield, attended South Ridge Elementary School, VRMS, and graduated from RHS in ‘82. I also raised my family here. We are what we refer to as “Homegrown Spuds!”

Watching the beautiful farmland turn into housing has been incredibly sad for me, because I know our little rural farming community will never be the same. I attend community events and only know a handful of people, where years ago, I knew nearly everyone. 

I’ve been out in the community for the past several weeks campaigning for the upcoming Ridgefield School District bond. I’ve gotten to know so many of our new, young families! I’m encouraged by their passion, vision and support. Many of them don’t know the “Old Ridgefield,” but they clearly love their community just like I do. We have a lot in common when it comes to wanting Ridgefield to maintain it’s homegrown charm. 

Ridgefield has raised generations of Spuds and will continue long after I’m gone. I will do what I can now for our future Spudders by voting Yes on Proposition 7, and I ask that you also join me in supporting Ridgefield Schools!
