Hayes provided the following statement to the Local Voters' Pamphlet in King and Snohomish Counties:
"Education is my passion. I’m a proud graduate of Washington public schools, which includes my time as an undergraduate and law student at the University of Washington. For the past 15 years I have run a small business helping students with college and test preparation to make sure local students can achieve their dreams. All three of my children have attended Northshore schools and it has been a pleasure to serve as a Northshore school director for the past four years. I have loved getting to know the students, teachers, parents and administrators, who through their hard work, have helped to make our district great. We have big changes ahead of us but with change comes opportunity and the ability to grow from great to amazing. It would be an honor to help be a part of that. I will continue to work for you and ask for your vote."

What was at stake?
Julia Lacey dropped out of the District 1 race on August 22, 2013 due to relocation outside of the district. Challenger Kimberly D'Angelo was the only active candidate in the race though Lacey's name appeared on the ballot. Hayes ran unopposed for re-election to the District 4 seat. The District 5 race only featured 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 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
