Bringing an educator’s experience, knowledge and passion

Why you are important in this election…

I’m excited to receive so much support in my campaign for Butte County Superintendent of Schools. Parents, educators and even education officials statewide have endorsed my candidacy—but, for me, the most valuable endorsement will be yours.

Please explore these pages to find out why I’m running (short answer: It’s the kids!) and learn more about me, my background and what I want for our students and schools (short answer: Success!).

Questions? Email me or call (530/680-9248). I love talking about education and how our county office creates better communities and benefits every school and every student.

If you’re not registered yet to vote, do it now so you can have a voice in this important election. You can even register online with the California Secretary of State’s office.

Keep up with Mary on Facebook


I realized that since taking office in January, I've been so very busy at BCOE that I've neglected this page a bit. I'm sorry!

While the election is over (and I don't face a new one until 2022--whew!), my commitment to you--and most importantly, our community's children--continues every day as Butte County Office of Education's Superintendent.

While BCOE's official news page reflects what the county office is doing, I will be continuing to share here so that my friends, supporters and voters can have a "peek" inside the office and see what is happening.

And, as always, I'm interested in hearing from you. If you have questions, concerns or kudos, please give me a call. Here's my personal cell phone: 530/680-9248.
