McAnalloy provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in King County:
"As a parent of children in our district, I am committed to its success. I have been an active PTSA board member for five years and I was recognized as a FWPS Volunteer of the Year in 2011. I am devoted to building relationships between parents, teachers, principals, administration, and the community. I have three main initiatives:
We need an inclusive success plan for ALL children. I want a more rewarding educational experience for all students, so each has an optimum opportunity to achieve.
We need improved parental engagement and community involvement. As parents, we need to know our choices at every step to ensure that each individual child is on the best educational path.
We need to provide funding to engage the WHOLE child. This includes programs that have been cut like elementary music, CTE, and performing arts while we reevaluate current expenditures. The 2009 statistics that 40% of students didn’t graduate from our district indicate that changes are needed.
I would be honored to receive your vote for School Board Director."

What was at stake?
Incumbent Ed Barney sought a fourth term in the District 1 seat against challenger McAnalloy. Newcomers Carol Gregory and Medgar Wells ran for the District 4 seat currently held by Angela Griffin, who did not file for election.
The Board of Education is facing increased scrutiny from local residents over travel spending and the recent removal of Tony Moore from the board presidency. At a board meeting on October 15, parents confronted the board over $60,000 in travel expenses accrued as part of the district's participation in the Global Partnership for Education. Board members argued that trips to Europe and Asia were necessary to study international education while critics argued that the money could have been used for classroom resources.
The board voted 3-2 at the October 15 meeting to remove Moore as president after his arrest in September for felony theft. Moore was indicted by an Oregon jury on August 23 on charges that he conspired to steal $150,000 worth of commercial tires for his salvage business.

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.
