Dan Cash has been the District 2 Representative since 2014 when the Americans for Prosperity endorsed Cash and several other candidates, sending out mass mailers that arrived right before election day.  Dan Cash has been a vocal supporter of the Moms for Liberty group and their attempt to remove books from the curriculum, including directing constituents to the Moms for Liberty website for their curriculum information.

Our Reasons

Tiffany is a current WCS parent (College Grove Elementary & Page Middle) and local business community member who works in sourcing at Mars Petcare, and we firmly believe she'll be a strong parent advocate with a level of professionalism, courtesy, and respect that's sorely needed.

Her top 3 areas of focus are ones we believe most WCS parents really care about when it comes to our schools, and teachers will especially love this: "Our district should be leading the state in salary and benefits. We need to make WCS the place for educators."

Tiffany is clearly tuned in to what actually matters in our schools, and her history of volunteerism shows she cares about giving back to her community. Being a public servant for our schools -including her own three WCS children - is a natural fit. 

And not to diminish Tiffany's capabilities or potential in any way because we truly feel we're all extremely lucky someone of her caliber has stepped forward to run, but frankly, we would happily endorse just about anyone willing to oust Mr. Cash from the Board after the immeasurable damage done to our school system, teacher morale, and community reputation this past year, primarily due to the unnecessary and outrageous curriculum drama he's validated and escalated.

It's time for a new voice and vote in District 2.

Groups:  In April 2021, Dan Cash had a meeting at a local hotel to talk about CRT. He presented a list of concerns about the elementary school curriculum Wit & Wisdom selection, which he had voted to approve in 2020. This meeting was attended by several known Moms for Liberty members. That list of concerns was published on the Moms for Liberty WC website. This same "Dan Cash list of books" was later used in Oskaloosa, Iowa, to protest the use of the Wit & Wisdom curriculum.

 

 

In November 2021, Dan Cash responded to a parent email requesting him to support the curriculum with this response:

"I personally will not support curriculum that is not age appropriate for children. I will not support curriculum that is constantly negative. The degrading of the family unit ,marriage, introduction of breeding, canniblism, or prostitution. These are just a few of the topics discussed starting in 1st grade." 

When the parent responded and asked for proof that these topics were in the curriculum, his response was: 

"Yes you can go to the WCS web site and look up Reconsideration of curriculum all the text are in their for review. If you can't find the info please log on to MFL web site that has a complete library on this topic. MFL.com." 

Notable Info:

In June 2021, Dan Cash put WCS in the national media with his response to a parent email: "You Hate White Men, White Little Boys, and Christians."

"My whole problem with the second grade curriculum... is age appropriateness, so to go from civil rights to women's suffrage... what's the difference?" Cash said at a board work session. "There's going to be different things in there that aren't age appropriate."

After stating that Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech was "one of the greatest speeches ever written," he questioned whether the speech and women's suffrage were things second graders could comprehend.
