Endorsements are a way to show one's personal or group support of a candidate. I am proud of the endorsements I have earned, and am looking forward to adding more to this page. I am thankful to all of the people who have taken the time to share their support for me.
Veronica De La Rosa - Clark
Director, Apex Peak Schools
Past Wake PTA Council Member (2010 - 2013)
Wake County Board of Education, District 8 - Lindsay Mahaffey
The three candidates in District 8 bring vastly different experiences: a substitute teacher, a small-business owner, and a PTA volunteer. We're going with the teacher, Lindsay Mahaffey.
Mahaffey, who also has a master's in education, cites Wake County schools as the reason she and her family moved here and said at a candidate forum in September that she wants more investment in pre-kindergarten. ...Mahaffey brings perspective as both a parent and teacher in the system.

Democratic Women of Wake County
Lindsay Mahaffey is honored to receive the endorsement of the Democratic Women of Wake County, a women's auxiliary group of the Wake County Democratic Party.
I met Lindsay shortly after she moved to Wake County and was privileged to be the choice for her girls’ preschool education.
Highly educated, multilingual, and with a deep knowledge of what good education is, within 18 months she experienced (on a personal and extended family level) a wide array of situations that affect Wake County Public School System parents.
Lindsay's new to the area 'nose' sensed the irregularities that the rest of us have taken for granted, and instead of getting lulled into the “business as usual” attitude - she decided to run for the vacancy in District 8.
Hers is the generation that is looking at the future of Wake County Schools with her own children as the direct recipients of those services; she is aware and adamant in obtaining the change and growth that is absolutely needed in Wake County.
For a public school system that represents the true greatness of this country, and for the children of Wake County, we need Lindsay Mahaffey. Please join me in voting for her.
