Rachael Running, Malden Ward 8 resident and parent, recently announced that she will run for School Committee.

“I am excited to announce that I am running for Malden School Committee in Ward 8,” Running said. “Our schools are a reflection of who we are as a community and I am passionate about supporting our students, teachers and families to help create the schools our students deserve.” “My wife, Sarah, and I have two children — Willa, who is in first grade at Linden, and Luca, who is entering kindergarten there this fall — so the success of our schools is deeply important to our family,” said Running. “But no matter who we are or what issues we face, everyone in Malden is touched by our schools. We all know that when our children succeed, our city succeeds.”

“I believe that my perspective — as a parent of young children, a fighter for social justice and a fierce supporter of our public school community — is needed on School Committee,” Running said. “I am proud to call Malden my home and I am excited to have the opportunity to earn your vote for School Committee in Ward 8. I welcome your ideas and input — please don’t hesitate to reach out. Together we can win for Malden.”
