Campaign themes


Whiting explained her reasons for running in the 2013 election on her campaign website:[5]

"As a parent of a recent Hilliard graduate, I know firsthand the importance of a high quality, excellent education. The many opportunities my daughter had at the Hilliard City Schools have prepared her well for her higher education at The Ohio State University. She is well rounded and well prepared for college life. I’ll work diligently to provide various types of opportunities for all of our students. It is critical to make sure our students are ready to learn, grow and thrive in the 21st century. I have the time, dedication and am committed to continuing the excellence of Hilliard City Schools and I am asking for your support on Nov 5th."

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.[8]
