Tracking the race for School Board

I have been watching the Federal Way School Board races with great interest and feel called on to remind voters of several things.

Our school district, with the leadership of an outstanding superintendent and with the extreme dedication of teachers and staff, has become one of the best in the state. People have chosen to move to Federal Way so that their children can enroll in our schools. The only downside to this picture has been a School Board that flounders about decisions and spends a lot of time feuding with each other.

It is time to clean house. Candidates like Helen Stanwell and Grace Rawsthorne have fresh ideas, good skills and the respect of the community. However, you choose to vote, consider that it is time for new board members who are fair –– not allied with one philosophy or the other ––know and care about children, and understand Federal Way and its citizens.
