Anjali Reed Phukan

Education/Certifications: Certified Public Accountant, MD & VA, active Masters, Information Systems, UMBC, 2010 MBA, American, 2000 BS, Trinity in DC, 1998 High School, Blair, MCPS, 1996 Political history: I have been a member of various political parties, but realized our local, national, and global recovery depends on a unity that bickering parties can't solve. I am now not in any party with ballot access. I hold true to conservative & environmental values and hope to encourage love and appreciation in all parties and people, and bring world unity for a new way to live. I tested and learned about our process as a write in for Comptroller in the last election, and now I am running for the non partisan office of Board member for the Board of Education in Montgomery County, Maryland. Why I am running for this office: As a daughter of a retired public school teacher, I want to give back to the community and the profession that has given so much to me. I'm the child of an immigrant and that I could fill the diversity whole on the board for that voice of 1st/2nd generations here. I am a member of a profession that requires passing an initial ethics exam, as well as continuing education in ethics, something I have consistently heard is greatly needed in MCPS.
