Low-Cost / No Cost
I am running my Campaign, as a Low-Key Campaign.
You will not be seeing a lot of things telling you to vote for me, but do expect to see me around in the communities talking to people, attending events, and getting information about what works, what needs work, and what work needs to be done -to make things even better for all, in the Shoreline School District, and for those that support it. I am working on information gathering, there is a lot to know.
Phone / Email / Face-to-Face
I have setup a Phone Number with Voice-Mail, E-mail, and this Website -for this Campaign. Feel free to contact me through any of these ways, anytime.
Feel free to leave a message.

You will not see a lot of money spent on this campaign. I do not even plan to have a bank account. I do want the job, or director position. I just have a different plan to make it all work out. I also do not want people to use their hard earned resources to help fund / or run my campaign. That also includes their precious time. I would prefer people spend their time with their families, and not focus on my Campaign.
In your (our) Community
Do not be surprised if you see me in your, or our community. I do that. But, don't expect me to make a big deal about it. I won't if you don't. Please feel free to approach me, talk to me, and / or tell me your thoughts about the Shoreline School District, and how you think I might be able to help make it even better, with your help, suggestions, and ideas. If you have a attended a City Council Regular Business Meeting in Lake Forest Park, in the last 4 years, then you have probably seen me, heard me make a Public Comment, and wondered how, why, and how much more I had to cover, if my 3-minutes, had not expired.
"I am known in the community as "Mike Dee". My name is Mike (Dee) McMullin. You probably have seen me, but maybe you did not know it was me. In other words, we are Friends, that maybe, have just not yet met."
The Primary Ballots are out, Please Vote for me, and lets get to work.
As a Shoreline School Board Director, I will work with the others on the School Board, to see that we have Policies, Plans, and Practices, that help ensure that we are addressing the Basics necessities for students, from their personal needs, to their educations needs, to their equity needs. I will also work with the Superintendent (Rebecca Miner), to see that a number of concerns are addressed. From those, I have personally identified, and those pointed out to me by others, some through Comments from the Community, that I have read about in past school board meetings, heard from recordings, I have requested from the School District, or that I have heard first hand, from being at the School Board Meeting, and then sometimes even commenting afterward, in support, or even putting together my personal contact information, and handing it to you, with the message, please let me know if I can help, somehow. Employees of the Shoreline School District, I have reviewed some of your Contracts, I have Reviewed the Pay-Scales, along with other benefits, and have even emailed a couple of your Union Leadership to ask about an Example of an Ideal Contract. Then, I wanted to go to the School District, and try and understand, what would stop these things from happening, and why. I understand the need for a Living-Wage, in my emails, I asked what one of the Unions, felt was a living-wage, at this time. I had hear a Comment from the Community, at a School Board Meeting, a few months ago.
We have a great, award-winning school district, I plan to help make it even better, for all involved, those that interact with this community, and those who help support it. I watch how both cities (Shoreline & Lake Forest Park), interact with the Shoreline School District, I have attended a few joint meetings, with these Public Agencies, and what was happening. I have also made Public Comments, at each of these Public Agencies meetings, when I have something important for the community, and think it needs to be "On the Record." I attend a lot of meetings, and can spot a good one, from one that needs work. I also know how to address, fix, and make sure good Public Processes are in place, for all involved. I also have a bigger scale, that I monitor the work of these Public Agencies, from immediate customer, to the local community, to the Tax-Payers. (The Tax-Payers of the City of Shoreline, and Lake Forest Park.) On another Web page, in the "About" section, I will write a bit more about what I am currently, recently, or have done, in the Community. I have been given a number of concerns to follow-up on from the Community, and am in the process of setting up meetings, researching more information, and trying to review best practices, for these types of things. I am also interest in improving Outreach, Communication, & bettering the Process for those involved with the Shoreline School District. In Lake Forest Park, we have a "Three-Touch Rule", I would like that in place here.
