Campaign themes

Bullock's campaign website listed fiscal responsibility, accountability and a pure focus on benefiting children as her campaign themes for 2013.[5]

What was at stake?

Three seats, including those of the board president, vice president and treasurer were at stake. Doug Lundberg, who served as the vice president of the board, was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which states that no "elected official of any...school district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office."[6] Incumbents Linda Van Matre and Catherine Bullock ran for re-election against challengers Shannon Mendes, Larry Norman Borland and Andrea Van Nort.[7]
