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!

Reasons for running 1. Transparency with curriculum and finances. 2. Teachers shouldn't have to spend their own time writing curriculum. 3. Focus on the fundamentals (reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history) 4. Why did we get rid of our mental health teachers? 5. Stream line administration.

My motivation to run for District 833 School Board began two and a half years ago when I was researching private and homeschool options for my two children. Once I saw how GREAT education could be in the private school models, it became very clear to me that fundamental GOODNESS was missing in the public school : GOOD grades, GOOD behavior, GOOD choices. I believe there is tremendous value in recognizing the strengths that each model of learning brings to the WORKFORCE. We the District of SoWashCo Schools have the potential for EXCELLENCE, but first we need to restore our focus on academics and limit distractions in the classroom.

It’s all about the kids! My wife and I have three children attending public schools in district 833. I’ve observed a shifting focus from the traditional academic approach to a more politically biased curriculum. I’m also concerned with student behavior, lack of respect, and declining academic achievement. Public education should NOT be political, nor should the school board. Public education should develop aptitude and promote critical thinking of complex issues. Each student is an individual; schools should focus on students' academic progress, encourage positive personal character growth, and offer diverse experiences and perspectives that prepare students for the real world.
