Tavish MacLean of Snoqualmie announced May 2 that he is running for the open District 1 seat of the Snoqualmie Valley School District board.
MacLean, a director of product management at T-Mobile, said in a press release that he has deep experience in budget management, strategic plan development and driving consensus across business functions throughout his career. His objective as a school board member is to leverage that experience to continue the district’s track record in improving on the high-quality education of our youth. He said he is aware of the challenges in managing the growth of the district, but remains optimistic.
“The good news is that the school board has several ideas on the table and many passionate people who aren’t afraid to contribute to the discussion,” said MacLean in the press release. “If elected to the school board, I am committed to hear out the options, facilitate the pros and cons, establish how the decisions are made and to honor the process and the outcome.”
MacLean, recently named Boy Scout’s Cubmaster of the year, is married to Rebecca, and has three children.
MacLean is the first to declare his candidacy for the seat representing the newly-formed District 1 position, which covers all of historic Snoqualmie, unincorporated portions of Snoqualmie, as well as neighborhoods on Snoqualmie Ridge. All citizens in the Snoqualmie Valley School District may vote for this position in November.
