Lakin provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Kitsap County:
"Effective administration is realized when a diverse Board with the necessary credentials is seated. It is essential to have an experienced administrative and technical professional as part of that diversity to enable optimum policy making and financial management.
My extensive experience in all levels of administration and management of multi-million dollar budgets both in the public and private sector is well suited for South Kitsap School Board service. I have been a member of three different bargaining units and have supervised bargaining unit employees, which included labor relations and contract negotiations. I am goal oriented and have a drive for results which I believe will be pivotal in reaching District goals of ensuring student success, encouraging and engaging parent participation, and graduating students who are prepared to be responsible citizens and leaders in our community.
It would be a privilege to serve as District 3 Director. I would appreciate your confidence and support"

About the district

Port Orchard outpaced the state poverty rate while lagging behind in median income and higher education achievement. The city had a poverty rate of 9.8% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%. The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Port Orchard's median income at $51,593 while the state median income was $58,890. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (24.1%) is below 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.
