Campaign themes

2013

Cast provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in King County:[3]

"As a 20 year resident of Northshore School District – and a mother of three children in the district – I am highly invested in its success. I'm running for School Board Director to ensure all our resources are dedicated to providing the highest quality education.

My priorities include: offering continually improving curriculum & programs to prepare our students for the modern economy; maintaining the financial health of the District; and providing a balanced approach towards programs and management across our diverse district.

In order to run a District of nearly 20,000 students, it’s important to ask the Tough Questions. It’s also critical to have a Director that will listen to all possible solutions to the Tough Problems. I believe all stakeholders in the process -- whether they be teachers, parents, students, or area businesses -- have valuable insights to lend.

I respectfully ask for your vote."

What was at stake?

Julia Lacey dropped out of the District 1 race on August 22, 2013 due to relocation outside of the district. Challenger Kimberly D'Angelo was the only active candidate in the race though Lacey's name appeared on the ballot.[4] Incumbent Sandy R. Hayes ran unopposed for re-election to the District 4 seat. The District 5 race only featured Cast as incumbent Todd M. Banks filed for election but withdrew his name on May 20, 2013 to focus on his small business.[5]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[8]
