2023Voter Guide

Minnesota Parents Alliance identifies and endorses school board candidates across the state who are aligned with our mission of prioritizing academic achievement, equality and parental rights in their school district. The candidates listed below are ready to stand up for students and parents and deserve your support.

Our Voter Guide is not created in coordination with any candidate or campaign. Candidates featured in is resource are endorsed based on MPA’s research of their platform and campaign, as well as input we receive from engaged, informed parents in each community. We identify the strongest candidates in each district who can be trusted to prioritize achievement, equal treatment for all students, parental involvement, safety, transparency and accountability.

All candidates featured in the Voter Guide are given the option to have the “Pro-Human Pledge” designation in their profile to indicate that they are aligned with and supportive of the FAIR Pro-Human Pledge. This is not an endorsement by FAIR, but rather a way for candidates to further emphasize their stance on fair and equal treatment of ALL students.

If you are interested in becoming a candidate for school board or you are a candidate who is interested in being featured in our Voter Guide, contact us today!

As a mother and retired police officer, safety for our kids has always been at the forefront of my mind. As more parents and schools report safety concerns for both students and teachers, I believe the school board can begin to address these issues through supporting parents by allowing them to parent their children as they see fit, allowing teachers to teach knowledge and skills needed to prepare them to be marketable in the workforce, and ensure taxpayer money is being spent on necessary resources to ensure excellent learning and a safe environment.

My purpose is to be a champion for students and a voice for parents; I have seen and experienced gaps as a mom and active volunteer in ISD196. We need to ensure all children receive an equal and inclusive education that encourages them to reach their full potential, as well as a focus on core curriculum and transparency in academics. There is opportunity to have an even greater partnership between students, staff, parents, and the school board, while also providing the community a clear understanding of the district budget and spending.

I believe the foundation for student success begins with solid literacy, math, and science skills. Unfortunately, District 196 has steadily declined in these core areas for the past ten years. We need to do better for our students — if elected, I’ll advocate for the resources, policies, and support systems that will make meaningful and measurable improvement in academic performance for our schools. I’ll also champion increased parent and community involvement to ensure diverse viewpoints are represented, respected, and reflected in the district’s plans. I’ll be a strong voice for students, parents, and teachers. Let’s help our students and get our district back on track!
