Campaign themes

Halloran used her experience as a parent, a PTA member (for 13 years) and an avid attendee of PCSB meetings as leverage for her campaign. She said that these experiences, "have given me an intimate understanding of our school district and the challenges ahead for Parma City Schools and Public Education. They have also shown me the type of person I want representing me when making decisions about my child’s education and my tax dollars."[4]

What was at stake?

Six candidates vied for three at-large seats on the Parma City School Board on November 5, 2013. Two of the three incumbents won re-election, while Leo Palaibis was replaced by newcomer Lynn Halloran.

Racial Demographics, 2010[6]
Race Franklin County (%) Ohio (%)
White 64.8 83.4
Black 30.2 12.5
Hispanic or Latino 5.1 3.3
Asian 2.8 1.8
American Indian 0.3 0.3

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.[7]
