“En agosto, the Scottsdale School Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg sent an unsolicited email to two parents, including a screenshot of his desktop that included a link to a Google Drive that was dedicated to collecting information about my peers and fellow parents,” Amanda Wray, a mother of two kids in the district, says in a Lake campaign video first released to Fox News.
“To see my name in the dossier was a complete violation,” Trish Olson, a mother of three in the district, dice en el video. “It felt like I had been targeted for advocating for not only my kids but for the kids of this district. … To have somebody like Kari standing up with us, it helps us keep the pressure on the district.”
“I support Kari Lake because I admire her chutzpah,” Jennifer DeStefano, a mother of four, dice en el video.
“I support Kari Lake because she’s a mom and she’s an advocate for all kids in Arizona,” Valerie Shannon, a mother of three, adds.
“I support Kari Lake because she is a fellow mama bear,” Kiki Dupey, a mother of two in the district, dice. “She is behind us 100% and she makes it easier for all of us to speak out and be loud.”
Greenburg has been demoted since the Google Drive, which many have characterized as a “dossier” on parents, estaba revealed in November. The dossier included information on 47 parents who dared to speak out against Greenburg’s policies at school board meetings, and it included Social Security numbers, background checks, a divorce paper, mortgage documents, trade certifications, and screenshots of Facebook posts.
While Greenburg remains on the school board, he is no longer the president.
Lake reached out
Wray told Fox News that Lake was the only gubernatorial candidate to reach out to her on the pivotal issue. She said Lake spoke at a rally before the school board, forcing local stations to cover the rally when they likely would not have done so.
“She’s helping us as parents find a voice when we have not been able to find one,” Wray said. “Teachers have a union, but parents don’t have a union. Kari has shown us that she’s not a politician. She cares about our education system and doing right for the children of Arizona.”

Arizona state Rep. Joseph Chaplik also said that, of the gubernatorial candidates, only Lake had spoken with the parents of Scottsdale Unified in person.
Amy Carney, a mother of six and candidate for the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) governing board, acordado. sin embargo, she said that Steve Gaynor, a businessman and former nominee for Arizona secretary of state in 2018, lives in the district, had reached out to her and planned to meet with the parents next week.
Lake issued a statement to Fox News about her campaign ad.
“Our greatest responsibility as mothers is to protect our children and provide them with the best future possible,” Lake said. “When school boards, or any other government entity, gets in the way of that, we have every right to fight for our children.”
“What Jann-Michael did is unforgivable,” ella añadió. “He specifically targeted concerned parents who want nothing but a good education for their kids. This man should never, ever be allowed within 100 yards of a school. Como gobernador, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with my fellow parents to protect our kids.”
