Election Central: Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?

Faust: Edgemont's schools are its single most important asset and institution. If my neighbors believe that I have something to contribute, I will do my best to continue Edgemont's tradition of excellence in education. Also, as a very active member of the community I believe that I can serve as an effective bridge between the community and the School Board (and Board to the community).
