Mihok has served on the Mentor School Board since 2003. The 56-year-old cited continued use of technology in the classroom and delaying levies as priorities.
He also wants to work with local businesses to ensure graduating students have skills needed to be hired after school.
Mihok noted Mentor has not had new taxes in the past 10 years as one reason to re-elect him to the board, as well as his willingness to cut costs where needed.
“I want to make sure that we keep up the excellence that’s been established over the last 10 years,” he said. “I got on the board right after the news came out the district was $20 million in debt, that’s why I got on the board, after we passed that emergency levy we’ve had excellent ratings every year, we haven’t had to go back to the taxpayers ... to get new taxes. ...
“Part of me worries that if you get other people on the board that have had different experience ... don’t change anything that isn’t broken.”
