Winskill challenger snags endorsements

A lot of campaign mailers were strategically timed to arrive along with the mail ballots Saturday. One from Elly Claus-McGahan caught my eye.

The former UPS math professor is challenging 18-year incumbent Debbie Winskill for a Tacoma School Board seat; so far she has run a much more visible campaign.

Claus-McGahan also touted some significant endorsements. Backers included the Central Labor Council, Metro Parks commissioner Ryan Mello, state Rep. Dennis Flannigan, Tacoma City Councilwoman Julie Anderson and black community leaders Tom Hilyard, Tom Dixon and Bil Moss.

Haven’t seen any mailings or endorsement proclamations from the Winskill camp yet.
