From Dale Estey's campaign page:
ventured, nothing gained! Over the last several months I have had the
tremendous honor of meeting with thousands of voters across the city and
hearing their hopes and desires for high quality education for all of
Seattle’s kids. It has been an inspiring and overall fun adventure. I
have learned a great deal from hardworking educators and leaders
throughout the District, families who are deeply invested in making
public education work, and thoughtful student and other community
leaders. We have helped push the District and the community toward
finally making progress on long-standing challenges, and we have kept
conversations focused on solutions.
It appears that the votes
aren’t there to win this election, and I just called Sue Peters to
congratulate her on a hard fought victory. I wish Sue and the entire
board great success in their work for Seattle’s 51,000+ public school
students. I am deeply grateful to each of our hundreds of generous
volunteers, endorsers and contributors who pitched in to this great team
effort, to my best friend and amazing partner, Mike, our wonderful
sons, Dale & Noah, and to all of our family and friends for their
unwavering support. Onward.
This is a good time to thank everyone who ran for the School Board. It is an act of courage in itself to step up and run and want this thankless job.
Thanks to reader Po3 for this info.
