Campaign themes

In an interview with The Herald News, Andrade listed the following campaign themes:[1]

Some of my priorities are to attempt to lower class sizes in the elementary grades, to institute career activities at all grade levels to help draw a connection between school and work, to improve the discipline in our schools, and to improve the morale and decrease the turnover among our teaching staff.

There were six seats on the school board up for election on November 5, 2013. Five of the six incumbents ran successfully for re-election, including Joseph Martins, Mark Costa, Paul Hart, Gabriel Andrade and Robert Maynard.

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]
