Policy Objectives - 

  1. Providing world-class training and ample funding to fully support our Special Education Department.

Angie's Forward Story: 

I am a parent of two students enrolled in FCPS schools and work as a consultant for FCPS families and staff, in addition to my volunteer work with the Alliance Against Seclusion & Restraint. I also serve on the MD State Autism Waiver Advisory Committee and am an active participant in current BOE meetings. My campaign was inspired after my child was secluded & restrained in FCPS schools.

I hope to fully fund and elevate Frederick County Public Schools educators and staff with a competitive wage as reflected in other counties. I also hope to resolve inequities across our county such as the failing school facility in Brunswick and the lack of transportation for our public charter schools.

The Forward Party’s Three Core Pillars aligns with my desire to deliver a world-class education to all future generations.
