Parents of 2 Parkland Victims Running for School Board

Scot Peterson's $8K-plus pension: It pays to be cowardly

Alhadeff already announced last month that she would be running for a spot on the school board, but this will be Petty's first time confirming the news.

"There is a lot more to do, and that's why I'm filing to run for school board, so I can have a seat at table, so I can represent parents all over the district who deserve to have their children come home to them every afternoon after school", Petty said. Since the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that claimed the life of her daughter, Alhadeff has started a nonprofit organization called Make Schools Safe Inc.

They're now supporting each other's candidacy and are forming a political action committee called Broward Parents for Better and Safer Schools to raise money. The video released Thursday, March 15, shows Peterson going toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but stayed outside with his handgun drawn.

"I think the district should be transparent with the information", Alhadeff said. "I have to question that". The incumbent, Abby Freedman, has not filed to run for re-election.

"It is my duty to make sure these schools are safe", she added.

You all can say that it is going to affect the whole thing of election and the government didn't accept that. He said people were bullied and weren't even allowed to file nominations.

"If I don't get in there and change it, it's unlikely to change", Petty said.

Alhadeff is a former classroom teacher in New Jersey and has a master's degree in education. Incumbent Donna Korn has filed for reelection and has raised about $8,200. "I'm looking forward to speaking to all the successes we have had in the school district and address all the places we still have to get better".

But she and Petty do not favor firing Runcie.

The Broward County school district is the sixth largest in the nation and the second largest in Florida. In addition to running for the school board, she and Petty said they would also continue to advocate for gun control, the Miami Herald reports.
