Online Primary Voters' Pamphlet, August 6, 2013
Tumwater School District No. 33 - School Board Director, District No. 1

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 Tumwater School District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.

“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots and the other is wings.”

For 52 years I have created strong roots in the Tumwater School District. My husband and daughters graduated from Tumwater High School and I have operated a small business. My job flexibility gave me the unique opportunity to volunteer at my daughter’s grade through high school, a benefit I still enjoy today as a volunteer at Littlerock Elementary. In addition to being able to see the classroom first hand, I also serve on budget, curriculum development, textbook adoption, boundary, and capital improvement committees. The involvement in these gave me a better understanding of work being done at the district level.

Serving on the board has been both rewarding and challenging and I would love to continue helping give children their wings and become successful adults.

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