"I make my living as a software developer and a computer consultant, and I believe that the analytical skills I employ on a daily basis will be of immense benefit to the School Board and the school system. Besides the critical thinking, which is applicable in all facets of Board service, my background and experience will help with what has become one of the prime areas of importance to our schools – technology."

"The new Common Core State Standards require online testing of all students by the 2014-15 school year. The needed technology should support assessment and administrative uses, as well as enabling students to learn the necessary skills to thrive in a progressively high-tech world. My expertise will help the Board of Education select the right technology at the right price to meet current and future needs of students and educators. I will ensure that not only are we spending our technology money wisely, but all of our money wisely."

Kinnick has 25 years of real-world experience in technology. He has been a business owner for 20 years, specializing in computer consulting and software development. He has been the Budget Team leader at his church for 10 years, and also leads a Bible study.
