I’m Running …

My name is Starr Marsett and I am running for re-election to the Anchorage School Board.

Passionate about public schools

I have been on the front lines, volunteering in and for public schools and kids, for many, many years. Most recently, I’ve served on the School Board and have been Board President for the last year. Before that, I volunteered with PTAs, often as President, and served on several Anchorage School District committees, including the Capital Improvement Advisory, Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC), Multicultural Education Concerns Advisory (MECAC), and Calendar Committees. From bake sales to budget, I’ve been there.

I’m a stalwart volunteer, in the classroom and in our community. I have always been, and will continue to be, a strong advocate for children. All of my work in and with our schools has one goal: To give each and every child a quality education. I have always been , and will continue to be, a strong advocate for children. I do not sit idly by when things need to get done.

Why I’m Running

Meeting challenges head-on

There’s no question that we are in a financial crisis. It’s been exacerbated by damage to our schools after the November 30th earthquake. The Governor’s decision to retroactively cut $5.8 million from funding for Anchorage schools promises to hurt, if the Legislature approves the cut. As I write this, I don’t have answers. Rest assured, though, that I don’t believe in side-stepping problems. And I do believe in involving the community.
