Online Primary Voters' Pamphlet, August 6, 2013
Tumwater School District No. 33 - 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 Tumwater School District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.

Having actively served on the school board the past 16 years, I continue to be a dynamic participant in the Tumwater School District. Over the past 20 years, I have had first-hand experience as a classroom volunteer, PTO officer, site team member, and committee member, culminating with my three children graduating from Tumwater High School. My twenty-five years of professional work in finance and management, in both the private and non-profit sectors, gives me a solid fiscal background and a commitment to wise financial decisions.

I feel that the Tumwater School District must retain its excellent reputation for high standards and quality education in the safe atmosphere of a small town community. This design requires continued nurturing and communication, as we face the many changes in the definition and resources available for public education.
