• Corey McEnry

  • Incumbent Corey McEnry is a public high school educator and a parent of a current Camas student running for re-election for Camas School Director in District 1.

    McEnry is proud of the district's efforts to create a safe and flexible environment for students to learn during the pandemic. He notes that the district has experienced virtually zero COVID transmissions thanks to health protocols. If re-elected, he will continue to support five days of in-person learning with remote options, following all laws on safety and public health, and providing emotional and social support for kids, staff, and families. McEnry also strongly believes that the district should continue pursuing equity so that all students, no matter their race, socioeconomic background, ability, or gender, can thrive in Camas schools. He will continue to diversify school programming and pathways to graduation and support professional development for staff while engaging with families and promoting digital access for school board meetings and more.

    McEnry's challenger in this race is Ernie Geigenmiller, a Republican precinct committee officer and journalist who says that he is running to keep politics out of schools but is supported by the League of Conservative Women Voters. In a recent candidate forum, Geigenmiller focused on the idea that schools are doing too much and need to go "back to basics," an idea at odds with the fact that many students need greater support right now. For example, Geigenmiller states that schools "cannot do everything" to support homeless students and should rely on nonprofit organizations, while McEnry says that first students in need should be identified, and then schools should provide for students through the community resource center - whether that be food, technology, and more. Geigenmiller's stance on following health mandates is unclear from his website, but his endorsements and statements seem to show that he would be a conservative school board member.

    We recommend McEnry in this race for his experience and care for all students in Camas.
