Tambra Pickford announced her candidacy for election to the Zone 3 seat on the Coeur d'Alene School District Board of Trustees.
"I'm all in and ready to be more involved serving, being a voice for the people as well as helping children and educators in our community," Pickford said in a press release.
She said she is open to listening, taking on leadership roles, studying issues and policies, problem-solving and collaborating with others.
"I am a team player willing to work in an effective and efficient way to benefit the students," Pickford said.
She is a graduate of Fresno State University and has experience working with learners whose first language is not English and with at-risk high school students.
Pickford and her high-school sweetheart, Kevin, have been married for 17 years and are the parents of three daughters.
She is described in the press release as an active parent who is engaged and devoted to her children's learning and extracurricular activities. Pickford's daughters attend Zone 3 schools: Skyway Elementary and Lake City High. Pickford also volunteers at Bryan Elementary.
"My family and I have been lucky enough to call Coeur d'Alene home," Pickford said. "It would be an honor to serve our local community in the role of Zone 3 School Board Trustee."
Pickford is challenging incumbent Terri Seymour in the only contested race for a seat on the Coeur d'Alene school board.
