Steve Bergstrom Announces Wake County School Board Candidacy

To the parents and voters of Wake County who are passionate about the future and education of our youth – I’m announcing my intention to run for Wake County School Board in the 2022 elections.

The time for strong leadership has never been more critical. Wake County has witnessed 8 years of failed policies. Educational progress is declining at rates we’ve never seen, and the damage of lockdowns has exacerbated the problems our schools were experiencing pre-pandemic. We need a course correction – now!

Here’s Wake County parents is up against:

– Learning loss, deemed a non-issue by this board, will plague our children’s future if we do not take real action.

– Special education families are still recovering from over a year of denied educational resources and services.

– Budgetary mismanagement is crippling education in Wake County.

– The school board refuses to listen to parents’ concerns. Emails, letters and speeches at board meetings continue to fall on deaf ears.

– WCPSS redistricting is currently being outsourced to an expensive legal firm, with no timetable of when the process will be finalized, leaving voters and candidates in limbo.

– Teachers are being taken advantage of and not provided with needed resources to do their jobs. Instead, taxpayer funds are wasted on ineffective curriculum and programs.

– School board challengers were outspent 3 to 1 last election. They lost by almost that exact margin.

It’s time to give Wake County schools back to parents. While we wait for the WCPSS BOE redistricting plan, no one knows which district they’ll be assigned to yet. That will not matter – I’ll be a voice for ALL Wake County parents and families. I will work to return Wake County to educational excellence. And I will make parental partnerships the focus of Wake County school policies.

We need to work together to win. Please help me in campaigning, educating voters, and getting out the vote. I’m asking you to donate time and money so we can hold the school board accountable to parents and voters across the County. Also, please spread the word on social media.
