I myself would not necessarily hold it against any candidate who does not make a statement; that's their choice during an election. But I will offer this opportunity.
Jill Geary said this on Facebook:
I have been getting inquiries as to whether I support our teachers and how I would have vote as a school board member. Of course, I do not currently sit on the board, and am not privy to all the information - but, from what I know of the issues and my personal beliefs, I could not see voting yes to bring legal action against our teachers. The parents I have heard from want our teachers supported and are willing to make sacrifices to see they are treated fairly as they stand up for our kids!!! As a school board representative, I would see it as my job to bring Seattle's families' voices to the table.
