• Stan Chalich is opposing two far-right candidates in a strong write-in campaign for Central Valley School Board Director in District 5. Chalich is a retired coach and high school teacher with the Central Valley school district, where he was awarded for his teaching on civics and government. He has represented the school district with the Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce and works on the Liberty Lake Sewer District, Liberty Lake Trails, and Watershed Committee. Chalich is a recognized community leader with a campaign to address the most pressing issues for students, teachers, families, and the school board, itself, rather than divide Spokane Valley’s school community more.

    Chalich is facing conservative candidates Pam Orebaugh and Rob Linebarger. Pam Orebaugh is a nurse and nursing educator who was a part of the 2020 campaign to oppose comprehensive sexual and emotional health education in Washington schools. She has taken some extremist stances in this race including teaching climate change denial and the Christian origins of life in public schools, severely limiting students’ access to reproductive health care, and encouraging homophobic ideas of family in all parts of the curriculum.

    Rob Linebarger is a self-described “Freedom Loving MAGA Populist Conservative” and more extreme even than Orebaugh in his vision for the school district. Linebarger recently led a group to recall school board directors over their science-based mask policy which has helped to keep teachers, students, and their families safe from the spread of COVID-19.

    In this campaign, Chalich has strong community support, including from both the Washington and Central Valley Education Associations. By comparison, Chalich’s opponents are unfit to serve on the board due to their refusal to comply with Washington’s health standards for schools, which would jeopardize the 81% of the school district’s funding that comes from the state. Additionally, both candidates are involved in a nonprofit, Washington Citizens for Liberty, that appears to be in open violation of campaign finance laws.

    Write in “Stan Chalich” for “Director Dist No. 5” on the Central Valley School Board and then completely fill in the bubble left of Chalich’s name.
