Term Ends: June 30, 2022

Michael joined the Kingston City School District’s Board of Education because he wants to help improve the graduation rate. He is the former owner of Sophia’s Kitchen on Broadway in Kingston, and is the former President of the St. George Greek Orthodox Church. 

If Michael could achieve any educational goal while serving as a Board of Education member, it would be to increase the graduation rate to 90 %.

He views the Board of Education’s top priorities as addressing the drop-out rate, and managing the budget and building maintenance. 

Current Board Committee involvements include the Dietz Stadium Commission and Chair of the Audit and Finance Committee.
