• Melissa Bedford

  • Educator Melissa Bedford is running for Spokane School Board, Director Position 3. Bedford currently works as an assistant professor at Eastern Washington University and has previously served both as a public school teacher and in institutional leadership positions. Outside of teaching, Bedford volunteers with a number of after-school programs and local organizations like the Spokane Public Library.

    Bedford is running to make education more accessible, equitable, and inclusive. She believes that the pandemic showcased the existing inequities within the state’s school system. If elected, Bedford wants to work to get broadband internet and other technology to all students, to promote the social and emotional health of students, and to make sure that all students feel welcome in the classroom. She has written about teaching civic engagement in the classroom and wants to bring the voice of an educator to the school board.

    Bedford is facing Daryl Geffken, a financial advisor and parent of two children in the district. If elected, Geffken would bring conservative values to the school board including opposing historically accurate curriculums about race. He also opposes same-sex marriage, inclusive classrooms, and multicultural programs.

    Melissa Bedford is by far the most qualified and progressive choice in this race and she deserves your vote for Spokane School Board, Director Position 3.
