SCHOOLS: Candidate Forum for 45th Legislative District and LWSD.

Candidate Forum for the 45th Legislative District and LWSD School Board
Wednesday, October 11, 7:00-8:30pm, Redmond High School Performing Arts Center

Co-sponsored by the Lake Washington PTSA Council and the Redmond High School PTSA

As a voter in the 45th Legislative District the future of the Washington State Senate rests in your hands, as the political party (Democrat or Republican) that wins the election in November will hold the majority in the State Senate. What that really means is that you hold the power, and there is no better time to learn about the candidates and how their positions will impact our schools and our community.

Lake Washington School District is the third largest school district in Washington, serving nearly 30,000 students. That number is growing every year. Do you know your candidates? Do you know their goals for our students and our schools? Lake Washington PTSA Council and Redmond High School PTSA are sponsoring a candidate forum so we can all get to know our candidates better before the voting deadline. This is a neutral, nonpartisan event to which all candidates have been invited.

Candidate Forum Participants
45th Legislative District:
Manka Dhingra
Jinyoung Lee Englund

LWSD School Board:

Whether you’re a parent, a business leader, or a community member, the decisions our State Senators and School Board Members make regarding education issues in the coming years will have an impact on all of us. That’s why you are invited to come learn where the candidates stand on the issues, including:
·       How the districts should face our unprecedented growth;
·       Education funding strategies at the state and local level;
·       The importance of teacher quality;
·       Access to special needs programs;
·       Strategies for diminishing the opportunity gaps in education.
