Alvarez provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in King County:
"I was born and raised in San Luis, Arizona to migrant field workers. I began working in social services and education over 20 years ago. I dedicated ten years to the Merced County (CA) Office of Education, 13 years to Child Care Resources and currently am employed by Puget Sound Educational Service District. The vision I have long held is that the Highline School District should be working towards creating a world-class education system, providing students with the tools needed to succeed in the 21st century. My priorities on the Highline School Board include:
I believe it is important to serve and regenerate the community."

Burien lags behind the rest of Washington based on median income, poverty levels and higher education achievement. The 2010 U.S. Census found the median income in Burien was $51,858 while the state median income was $58,890. The city's poverty rate was 14.5% compared to the state's 12.5% poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (26.5%) was lower than the state average (31.4%).
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. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
