My wife and I have lived in Auburn Hills for 21 years and we thoroughly enjoy the community. We have three boys who attend the Avondale Schools.
I am running for the Avondale School Board on November 8th because I want to ensure that all children get an enriching and fulfilling educational experience. In doing so, I will work with stakeholders not only to build a brighter future for our children but also a stronger community.
HELLO, I am Wayne Kakuda
I believe that my passion, work ethic, and fiscal responsibility and leadership skills will enable me help the School Board develop and implement strategies that will provide an enriching and fulfilling educational experience for all students.
