2017 Election: Introductory statements from Shoreline School candidates Wilson and Pollak

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

By Evan Smith

Shoreline School Board incumbent David Wilson and challenger Steven Pollak recently sent statements introducing themselves to voters.

The two are running in the November 7 election to represent Director District 3 in the west part of the Shoreline School District including Richmond Beach, Innis Arden, The Highlands, Highland Terrace, and part of Richmond Highlands.

Candidates must live in the director district they wish to represent, but voters from throughout the School District vote for board members representing all five director districts. The Shoreline School District includes all of the city of Shoreline and the city of Lake Forest Park.

One other Shoreline School Board position is on the November ballot. Three more will be on 2019 ballots.

Here are the statements from Wilson and Pollak:

Shoreline School District 412, Director District 3

Shoreline and Lake Forest Park have a rich tradition of supporting excellent public schools. My continuing vision for our network of educational communities is a system that reflects the positive diversity of those communities.

My priorities are a safe, nurturing learning environment, fiscal accountability, curriculum innovation, professional development and encouragement of a strong partnership between parents, our outstanding teachers and administrators, and our students.

I believe that nothing will open the door of opportunity for our students more than a quality public education. That is why I am asking once again for your vote.

Please email davidforschoolboard@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Educating children for a future beyond our comprehension in a rapidly changing world is a difficult task. The work of the school board should not be solely to react to the crisis of the moment, but should contain a vision of what the educated individual of the future will need to know. An educational system changes slowly due to the needs of the various stakeholders, parents, teachers, administrators. I feel the school board requires someone with a creative approach to problem solving; a vision about the future of education; someone who can present creative alternatives for discussion. As an artist and former teacher, I feel I can fill that need.
