Partman provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in King County:
"MY NAME IS Miles Partman. I am an Evergreen High School graduate. Also I am a volunteer at habitat for humanity store. I believe that it's time for a change in the leadership of this directors district. We need to have a Clearer focus on education and making sure that all taxpayers money is spent well and accounted for its intended purpose. We need more transparency in Highline School district and get the parents and students more involved in their education. Also I believe that we need to listen to the community and see what the community thinks to improve the education system as a whole. Also, I have TALKED TO MANY OF YOU IN THE COMMUNITY AND I have heard that you want better quality education and better anti-Bullying campaign and small class sizes in elementary through high school etc. I look forward to serving you."

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.
