Byrd Park took the time to ask some questions of Maurice Henderson and below is one response. Head to Byrd Park for the rest. No mention or discussion of Patrick Henry including his actions last winter. You can also check out his opponent Mamie Taylor’s answers here.
1) Why should the 5th district retain you as our School Board representative?
I owe in no small way my personal success in life to the dedication and preparation that I received from the teachers and administrators in Richmond Public Schools. I strongly believe my life and professional experiences have prepared me to contribute to the transformation of RPS into a globally competitive public school system.
- As a board member and Vice Chairman, I have demonstrated a commitment to serve all our children.
- In a time of severe budget pressure, I have demonstrated strong support and appreciation for the professionals in RPS and their ongoing development.
- I have made adequate funding of education for our children my highest priority, and will continue to do so.
