Campaign themes

2013

Febvre explained his reasons for running for the District D seat on his campaign website:[2]

"Poudre School District is a thriving educational organization with a mission to "educate ... every child, every day." This mission and vision is commendable, but it is also vital to our community and economy. The resources we use now to educate, train, and grow our younger population generates boundless return in the form of a vibrant and cohesive economy.

The district has a great diversity - cultural, socio-economic, and learning styles. The work of educating every child takes accountability - accountability from each student, educator, parent, and tax-payer in the district. Educating each and every student takes a commitment from all of us, and it involves consistent and continuous organizational learning and evaluation. I am both excited and passionate about being involved in evaluating, prodding, and collaborating with the District to seek greatness."

What was at stake?

Incumbent Jim Hayes did not file for re-election in District C, leaving challengers Mel Hilgenberg and David Trask to compete with one another for the seat. Christophe Febvre ran for re-election in District D without opposition. Nicholas Holian ran unopposed for the District E seat formerly held by Patrick Albright, who did not file for the 2013 election.

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.[6]
