Cheesebrough provided the following statement to the local voters' pamphlets in King and Snohomish Counties:
"As a parent to four children in the Northshore School District, I want to ensure that NSD maintains high-quality education for our children, and that our community continues to be an attractive destination for people to live and work. However, I am concerned that the District is losing its focus on children.
The next four years will be critical. Plans are being made to change the length of the school day and school boundaries, build a new high school, and modify grade configurations. Many families will be directly affected by these transformations, yet are not being consulted over whether they want them.
As your School Board Director, I will be an advocate for kids. I will listen to parents and teachers, engage community in major decisions, exercise fiscal responsibility, and prioritize a quality educational experience for our children."
What's at stake?
Julia Lacey dropped out of the District 1 race on August 22, 2013 due to relocation outside of the district. Kimberly D'Angelo is the only active candidate in the race though Lacey's name will still appear on the ballot. If Lacey garners a majority of the vote on November 5, the board will consider the seat vacant and select a replacement. Incumbent Sandy R. Hayes is running unopposed for re-election to the District 4 seat. The District 5 seat only features 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.

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 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
