Developing Story: Shannon Beckham, Casey Ayers and Sam Hall support Elizabeth Andersen in district 2 race

District 2 had five candidates, Shannon Beckham, Casey Ayers, Sam Hall, Elizabeth Andersen and Nick Howland. In a very competitive race Anderson and Howland advanced out of the primary to the general election.

Now every candidate who didn't, representing 47.05 percent of the electorate has endorsed Elizabeth Andersen joining the 22.01 percent of the vote she received.

Howland who has proven wiling to say and do anything to get elected is still formidable. In the primary he raised more than the other candidates combined taking in thousands from charter schools, voucher schools and people who lived outside the district.     

That being said its a great sign that all the other candidates recognize that Elizabeth Andersen and her unique background as a former DCPS teacher and current mental health counselor would make a far better school member than Howland who has both questionable judgement and ties.

District 2, you have the opportunity to make a real difference, an opportunity to put somebody who knows our schools and children on the board, or sadly an opportunity to do more of the same, which hasn't exactly worked out for you. 

If you care about our schools and students, please consider supporting Elizabeth Andersen.

  1. Ms. Andersen has my vote! I had voted for Casey Ayers in the primary because I think his emphasis on industry-recognized certifications is important - not every student needs to go to college to be successful. No way would I support Nick Howland.
    Did you see the vote approving the district's annual financial report was 6 - 0? Of course, we all know who couldn't be bothered to show up for the meeting. Maybe Scott Shine thought there was a way he could resign, get Howland appointed as his replacement, to give Howland the advantage of an "incumbent" in the November election.
