I have a passion to help students and teachers. Education is the key to individual and community success. I will do everything I can to support student success, safety in our schools, professional development for our teachers and to explore opportunities for funding sources.

I am aware of many challenges that our school district face and I am excited to get involved and contribute to eliminating hurdles that our students and teachers face on a daily basis.

This is my first venture into running for an office and I would sincerely appreciate your vote.
I am a lifelong resident of Erlanger who graduated from Lloyd Memorial High School in 1984. The Erlanger-Elsmere School District has historic ties to my family. My father, Chub Brown, graduated from Lloyd in 1952. My mother, Frances Wells Brown, graduated from Lloyd in 1954 My son, Addison, was a graduate in 2013 and my daughter, Payton, a graduate in 2015 My wife, Melinda (a Scott Eagle), was a 1st grade teacher at Miles Elementary in Erlanger-Elsmere until retiring this past May with 29 years of service. In total, 23 of my family members have attended Lloyd Memorial High School

I have been involved with the school district as a Site Based Member at Lloyd and Tichenor. I have also enjoyed opportunities to coach baseball and basketball in the school district. I have devoted my life to the field of education. I am currently Director of Information Technology at NKU and in my 29th year of employment, there. Thank you, and I would appreciate your vote on November 6th.
