Urbandale School Board

Judy Downs 


Election day is September 12 

I am running for Urbandale School Board because I think every child deserves a free, comprehensive and well-rounded education.

In a climate full of uncertainty and division, I think that a strong local government is more important than ever.

My parents chose to raise me in Central Iowa because of the high value we put on public education. When deciding where to raise our son, my husband and I chose Urbandale for it’s strong schools and community. In a few years my son and his two cousins will enter the Urbandale Public School system and I want to help make sure that it remains both student-focused and teacher-friendly in this tumultuous environment.

Areas of Focus 

Equity, Diversity and inclusion 

I believe that every Urbandale student deserves equal access to excellent teachers, curriculum and 21st century facilities. 



Iowa has always been proud of its strong public education. I believe that we need to invest in our teachers and support staff to ensure that we maintain a high standard to excellence.  



A strong district needs 21st century facilities that provide optimal learning environments, safe conditions and long-term usability. 


As your school board member, I would work to advocate with state legislators for adequate education funding . Additionally, I will support sound fiscal policy to ensure responcible use of valuable tax-payer investments. 


An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
