Online Primary Voters' Pamphlet, August 6, 2013
Rochester School District No. 401 - School Board Director, District No. 5
 
 

School Districts - Thurston County is divided into nine separate school districts, each governed by a five-member board. The board’s responsibilities include: budget, policy development, curriculum approval, planning, and communications. School board directors delegate authority for day-to-day functions to professional staff; however, they may never delegate ultimate responsibility. Board members are elected in a nonpartisan general election by voters within that school district. They receive no salary. A board may approve a per diem compensation for its members for attending board meetings. In most districts, candidates must reside in the subdistrict for which they are seeking office. All candidates are elected by the voters of the entire school district.

All school district positions are nonpartisan.

 
  Only voters residing within the Rochester School District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.

It has been my privilege to serve the Rochester community for the past 16 years. The Rochester School district has become one of the outstanding school districts in Washington State. We have been fiscally responsible which has led us to be one of the few districts in Washington that is not looking at shortfalls during these tough budget times in the legislature. I will continue to advocate for full state funding of education so our community does not have to pass large levy amounts just to cover basic education. I ask for your vote to continue our responsible budgets and quality education for the outstanding Rochester School district.

 
 
Ballots will begin arriving October 17, 2013. If you have not received your ballot by October 24,
contact our office immediately.
