Summit County Education Association recommends 4 school board candidates

The Summit County Education Association’s 2021 election committee has selected four candidates to support for school board.

Those candidates are Chris Guarino, Kate Hudnut, Johanna Kugler and Lisa Webster. Hudnut, Kugler and Webster are the three incumbents.

Hudnut currently serves as the board president and was elected in 2017 in an unopposed race. She is running for reelection for a two-year term. Kugler and Webster were both appointed to fill vacated seats and are running alongside Guarino for four-year terms.

Joe Kassay, chair of the Summit County Education Association election committee, wrote in an email that the association contacted all nine candidates inviting them to meet and that five responded. The members of the 4 for the Kids slate — Kim Langley, Manuela Michaels, Pat Moser and Danielle Surette — all declined to interview because the slate is not seeking any endorsements “so that we will be free of political conflicts when elected,” Langley wrote in an email.

The association represents more than 85% of the educators within Summit School District.
