C. Mark Arnold, a finance and investment executive, has announced his bid for Decatur School Board.
Arnold, the founder and principal of Red Clay Capital Holdings LLC, said the City Schools of Decatur needs someone with the financial expertise to help navigate increased enrollment as state and federal funding is shrinking.
Two trends are converging upon City Schools of Decatur right now: Increasing student enrollment and decreasing state and federal support for public schools.
So it has never been more important for our school system to navigate the financial complexities of public education. To do that, Decatur’s school board must provide the oversight needed to ensure that our quality of education continues to improve – while our stewardship of taxpayer dollars remains strong.
As a candidate for Decatur School Board, I bring deep expertise in financial management and a passion for giving our community’s kids an education that prepares them to continue their learning. I’m asking for your support to continue the Decatur success story.
