Zone 3 Trustee: Pickford Announces Candidacy

Tambra Pickford, who is challenging incumbent Terri Seymour for the Coeur d'Alene School Board Zone 3 trustee position, issued a news release this afternoon about her candidacy:

“I’m all in and ready to be more involved serving, being a voice for the people as well as helping children and educators in our community,” Pickford said.  In addition, Pickford said she’s open to listening, taking on leadership roles, studying issues and policy, problem solving and collaborating with others.  “I am a team player willing to work in an effective and efficient way to benefit the students.” Pickford is a graduate from Fresno State University, has experience working with ESL (English as a Second Language) learners and at–risk high school students.  She is an active mom engaged and devoted to her daughters’ learning and extra-curricular activities.  They attend Zone 3 schools, Skyway Elementary and Lake City High School.  Pickford also volunteers at Bryan Elementary. Tambra and her high-school sweetheart, Kevin, have been married seventeen years and are the parents of three daughters.  She adds, “My family and I have been lucky enough to call Coeur d’ Alene home.  It would be an honor to serve our local community in the role of Zone 3, School Board Trustee.”

Question: What advice would you give challenger Pickford in her race against incumbent Terri Seymour?
