She has a master’s degree from the University of Washington Evans School of Public Policy, is the mother of three elementary school-aged children in Seattle schools, and is more knowledgeable about education policy than probably anyone you know.

Mack aims to help the district solve its financial crisis and sift for any waste in the budget. She is curious why student transportation in Seattle is more expensive than other districts. She wants to explore whether the central office could be more efficient and if more money should be pushed toward school buildings.

She also is interested in better planning for student population growth, hiring for skilled and culturally responsive educators and increasing equity.

Voters would be well served by having Eden Mack on the school board.
