I am asking for your vote for re-election to the Federal Way School Board-- Director Position 2. As a School Board member, I have worked hard to make sure the district provides a safe, quality education for all. During the past four years, our community has been impacted by a pandemic, economic stress and global events. I have worked to make sure that our schools are a source of safety and stability to our students and their families. 

In my 25 years at Highline College, I have taught thousands of college students. The school district needs to prepare our students for their next steps, whether college or careers.  I want every family—including immigrants and refugees new to the US-- to feel welcome at FWPS. And I want every young person in our district to graduate with the knowledge and life skills to succeed in the 21st century economy.

The work continues, and that is why I am running for re-election to the Federal Way School Board. I ask for your support.

At the age of 3 my family came to the United States and we moved straight into Washington. Lived here almost all my life and all my schooling was here, locally. Now that I have children, I want them to have a great education, just as I had a great time at school I want the same of them. 

A big emphasis school should have is on virtue. There are many things going on in the world and in our nation, and a standard of morals is a very important thing to have in a society. Our children need to know where this nation comes from, they need to know the constitution and the rights they have in our nation. As a business owner i have learned that its hard work to get things done right and that is what I am willing to do for our children.

Dear fellow community members,

My name is robert ribaudo, and I am excited to announce my candidacy for school board district 2 for federal way. As an Iraq veteran and proud parent, I believe I have the unique perspective and experience needed to serve our schools and students well.

My military service taught me the importance of teamwork, discipline, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. As a parent, I know firsthand the importance of a quality education and a safe, supportive learning environment for our children. If elected, I will make it my priority to ensure that every student in our district has access to the highest quality education possible, regardless of their background or circumstances.

I believe in fostering a school community that is inclusive, innovative, and forward-thinking. With your support, I am confident that we can work together to achieve this goal and ensure that our schools are equipped to prepare our students for success in today's ever-changing world. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely Robert Ribaudo
