Campaign themes


Lacey provided the following statement for the local voters' pamphlets in King and Snohomish Counties:[4]

"With 20 years experience in education, I’m passionate about what I do and understand that our focus needs to be on the kids. As a teacher and district parent, I know Northshore is a phenomenal school district and that we can be even better.

We have high expectations for our district. That is why I’ve worked successfully to raise student achievement, increase access to more rigorous coursework and support innovative programs.

As Board President, I strive for accountability and openness. That means setting clear, measurable goals and always including stakeholders in the decision-making process. I will continue working to address the needs of all learners, expand opportunities in science and math, and prepare all students for college and beyond while maintaining a fiscally responsible budget."

What was at stake?

Lacey dropped out of the District 1 race on August 22, 2013 due to relocation outside of the district. Challenger Kimberly D'Angelo was the only active candidate in the race though Lacey's name appeared on the ballot.[5] Incumbent Sandy R. Hayes ran unopposed for re-election to the District 4 seat. The District 5 race only featured newcomer Amy Cast as incumbent Todd M. Banks filed for election but withdrew his name on May 20, 2013 to focus on his small business.[6]
