Campaign themes


On her district profile, May explained why she sought election to the board:[1]

"Since moving to Ohio in 1991, I have volunteered in our children's classrooms, in their buildings, worked on bond/levy campaigns and served on numerous committees. There is a point where your children really do not want you working in their classrooms any longer. That discovery and the fact that I have asked our taxpayers to continue to support our schools led me to run for the school board. I wanted to continue to assure the community that this District really is accountable to the taxpayers and to the students. I enjoy the work we continue to do in Dublin City Schools."

What was at stake?

Incumbents May and Stu Harris along with newcomer Rick Weininger sought election to the board on November 5, 2013. There were no certified write-in candidates by the August 26 deadline so Harris, May and Weininger ran without opposition. Incumbent Gwen Callender did not file for re-election in order to run for Franklin County Municipal Court Judge.[3]

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.[6] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
