Endorsements

Mann did not receive any endorsements for her 2013 campaign.

Campaign themes

In an interview with the Greeley Tribune, Mann argued, "We need to get the community more unified around our students. We all want the same thing ultimately, for our children to do better than we did. We should not compare based on skin color. We have the ability in our own back yard for our students to work with each other on a global level. I hate to see us pass up this opportunity. And the way we pass up on that is to keep saying 'us' and 'them.'"[1]

What was at stake?

Four seats on the board were at stake in this election. Two incumbents, Roger Alan DeWitt and Paleri Mann, filed for re-election while fellow incumbents Scott Rankin and Linda J. Trimberger decided not to run. They competed with six challengers in Donna Downey, Rhonda Solis, Steve Hall, Ron Brecheisen, John Haefeli and Logan Mahan for the four open seats. Downey, Hall, Brecheisen and Mahan decided to run as "The Fab Four" slate due to their shared conservative positions on issues, such as Amendment 66.[3]

Amendment 66

Amendment 66 was an initiated constitutional amendment on the Colorado ballot that would have raised the state's income tax in order to increase state funding for public school districts. The Colorado Legislative Council estimated that the current state funding of approximately $5.5 billion would rise by $915 million if the measure had passed, which it did not.[4] This issue divided the candidates, with Roger Alan DeWitt, Paleri Mann, Rhonda Solis and John Haefeli in support of the measure and Ron Brecheisen, Donna Downey, Steve Hall and Logan Mahan opposing it.[5]

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.[8]
