Parents of Parkland school shooting victims to run for school board

Lori Alhadeff and Ryan Petty are holding a news conference Tuesday morning outside the Broward County Governmental Center to formally make the announcement.

Two parents whose children were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre are expected to announce Tuesday that they are running for seats on the Broward School Board. Petty said he wants to "represent parents all over the district who deserve to have their children come home to them every afternoon". Since the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that claimed the life of her daughter, Alhadeff has started a nonprofit organization called Make Schools Safe Inc.

U.S. President Donald Trump also called Peterson a coward.

Petty and Alhadeff said the school district failed to properly respond to warning signs that Cruz was a troubled student with risky tendencies.

The group is also supporting former Stoneman Douglas teacher Richard Mendelsonagainst incumbent Laurie Rich Levinson for the District 6 seat, which includes Weston, Cooper City and Davie. She said discipline policies must be "revamped" and to "meet somewhere in the middle". "I'm still not satisfied with the answers to the questions I asked back then".

Alhadeff, 43, whose daughter Alyssa was killed, is expected to run for the District 4 seat, which Abby Freedman, 51, now occupies. It is my duty to make sure these schools are safe. Incumbent Donna Korn has filed for reelection and has raised about $8,200. "And the only way I'm going to do that is if I get on the school board to make those decisions and make those changes".

The Broward County School District is the country's sixth largest school district and the second-largest in Florida behind Miami-Dade County.

Campaign officials for Alhadeff and Petty say that while the two are supporting each other's candidacy, they're not involved in other School Board races.
