Campaign themes


Roberson described her themes for the 2013 election on her campaign website:[4]

I have been passionate about education since I lived in Bellevue and started to volunteer first in my children’s elementary school, Phantom Lake and later at the district level.

After nearly a decade as a parent in this school system, I have learned a lot and have taken on leadership roles in response to needs I saw and gaps I could help fill. If elected to the school board, what I envision doing for Bellevue is:

1. Relying on what students, staff, parents and community members tell me about their experiences in the district, along with hard data, to help guide me in decision-making.

2. Supporting the district administration and other board members to ensure that collectively we are reaching out to and effectively engaging ESL families, parents of students with disabilities and others who need help accessing information and resources necessary for student academic success

3. Working to ensure that goals regarding equity and inclusion are part of district goals and that these align with curriculum; and supporting district efforts to ensure cultural competence among staff and students.

4. Focusing on students’ needs first in making decisions."

What was at stake?

Incumbent Chris Marks sought a third term without opposition in District 3. Roberson and Tracy Trojovsky ran for an unexpired two-year term in District 4 left open by the resignation of current member Michael Murphy.[5] The District 5 race to replace outgoing member Paul Mills included newcomers Ed Luera and My-Linh Thai.
