2019 School Board Candidates
Mike Allen and Judy Hedrick were elected to the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Board of Education.
The Lee’s Summit R-7 Board of Education election was April 2, 2019. Foundations for our Future interviewed seven of the eight candidates and recorded all questions and answers. All videos are here.
Foundations for our Future proudly endorsed Mike Allen and Judy Hedrick.
We believe that the bedrock of any community starts with the school system; therefore, we took the time to research, interview, and vet all candidates in an effort to select the best to fill these important seats. This vetting fulfills our mission as a committee to find and encourage the best possible candidates for elected office in Lee’s Summit.
Each candidate completed an initial questionnaire followed by a comprehensive live interview. Background checks were finalized, along with many hours of conversations, discussions, and deliberations by the Foundations for our Future committee. Ultimately a vote was conducted.
Following is a link to each candidate’s interview. We invited you, our readers, to listen and watch the interviews, make an informed decision, and vote on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. If you were not inclined to watch the interviews, we encourage you to trust our collective vote and recommendation of candidates Mike Allen and Judy Hedrick.
