School District Board Director Kory DeMun will not seek re-election to his Director District 1 seat on the Edmonds School District Board of Directors.
The election for his four-year term is in November 2015 with interested candidates required to file with Snohomish County in May.
“I have served the District for four years and enjoy the work,” DeMun said. “It is time for me to move on so I have more time to spend with my family and career.
“I have enjoyed working with the Board, administration and schools and will continue volunteering in support of the District,” he added. “This has been very fulfilling. I am so impressed with our voters’ consistent and overwhelming support of our schools. That needs to be said loudly and clearly.”
DeMun is an operations manager for a local firm. He and his wife have four children who attended Edmonds School District schools.
“Director DeMun contributed greatly to the development of several key initiatives in the District, including our Strategic Direction,” Edmonds School District Superintendent Nick Brossoit said. “Director DeMun serves on the Graduates Who Are Ready for Life Work Group and his contributions in his current role will be missed after this year, but we look forward to him remaining active in our work as a volunteer.”
The filing deadline with Snohomish County Elections for positions up for re-election in November 2015 is May 11-15. Those interested in filing for this open seat must reside in Director District No. 1. To determine whether a community member resides within Director District No. 1, there are several options:
- A general map outlining the Director Districts;
- A map including school locations within each Director District; or
- A description of the Director District boundaries.
In addition to Director District 1 position up for re-election, Director Districts 3 and 5 four-year terms are also on the ballot. They are held by Directors Gary Noble and Diana White, respectively. Director District 4 is currently held by April Nowak who was appointed mid-term to the School Board in spring 2014. Her position is also open for election on the November ballot.
