Jeff Carr and wife of 23 years Cynthia have 5 children ranging in age from 8 to 22. Jeff lives in a house of divided loyalties where he and his oldest son graduated from Cooper HS and currently has two attending Abilene HS. He is a business owner with CEO and Board experience. His work has provided governmental experience in DC working with the Department of Defense and Department of Energy.
Jeff believes that AISD has been in decline for many years and would like to change that. "I used to be able to use AISD as a major selling point when hiring new employees with young families, but for a while now AISD has become hurdle in bringing talented people to Abilene." Jeff stands for empowering teachers, critical thinking and financial responsibility. "We need to reduce teacher workloads, so they can focus on educating our kids." "Our curriculum should emphasize critical thinking over indoctrination." "We must be good stewards with other people's money, and realize our decisions can create significant hardships for our community."
