Please be aware that Maureen Grosheider or her supporters are trying to confuse voters with election signs from the 2007 school board election. These signs are appearing across the District.

The 2007 signs list Grosheider’s name with four other candidates—THESE OTHER CANDIDATES ARE NOT ON THE 2015 BALLOT.

2007 Election sign

Please remember to vote for a team of candidates committed to moving NA forward.

On November 3, vote Blackburn, Disque, Filiaggi, Finley, Mahler, McClure, and Meyer!


Chris Disque will be running against Maureen Grosheider in this November’s general election. Chris Disque made it onto the Republican ballot in the primary election and Maureen Grosheider made it onto the Democratic ballot in the primary election. The other remaining candidates made it onto both the Republican and Democratic ballots in the primary election.

If you are a registered Democrat, it’s important that you don’t vote a straight party ticket in the general election. If you do, your vote will go to Maureen Grosheider instead of Chris Disque.

Please share this ballot information with friends and family who live in the District.

If you have a group sign from the primary, please put it back in your yard at this time. You will also begin to see individual signs for Chris Disque to help promote his candidacy.

We will be posting additional election information between now and Tuesday, November 3rd to keep people informed. Thank you for your continued support!

The efforts of the NA community two years ago to bring change to the NA School Board will continue to be undermined if Maureen Grosheider and Joe Greenberg are re-elected on May 19. 
We need your vote to elect new candidates in their place.
Maureen Grosheider has been on the Board for 2 decades.  To increase her chances for re-election, she is running for both a 2-year and 4-year term at the same time.  Under Grosheider’s leadership, the Board raised taxes 3 years in a row, operated classes above class size guidelines, and relied on inaccurate projections that led to the failed recommendation to close a school.    
Joe Greenberg has supported a tax increase every year since he joined the Board.  Like Grosheider, he voted against the elementary class size policy.  When 11 elementary classes started the 2012-13 school year above the class size guidelines, Greenberg stated that implementing a class size policy like other districts was unnecessary.

Please support the 6 candidates who are committed to moving NA forward: FILIAGGI-FINLEY-MAHLER-MEYER-DISQUE-BLACKBURN.

A slate of candidates opposed to closing an elementary school and higher elementary class sizes will hold four seats on the school board.

Because three candidates endorsed by the Save NA Schools group won nomination in May on both the Democratic and Republican tickets, the race was basically between incumbents Thomas Schwartzmier on the Republican ballot and Daniel Hubert on the Democratic ballot for the fourth four-year term.

Mr. Schwartzmier received 62 percent of more than 5,300 votes to defeat Mr. Hubert. Tara Zimmerman Fisher, who received the most votes (4,917), Scott Russell and incumbent Ralph Pagone were the other winners.

“It’s incredible to see what has been achieved by a group of thoughtful, committed residents in this district,” said Mrs. Fisher, a 1994 graduate of North Allegheny.

Mr. Russell said he was “excited to serve as a school director for North Allegheny. “I look forward to working with the current and new board members.”

“The results of yesterday’s election were a huge win for the current students, future students, and taxpayers of the North Allegheny School District,” Mr. Pagone said.

“Thank you to our friends and citizens for being informed and educated voters, and congratulations on having your voices heard.”

A candidate endorsed by Save NA Schools also took the two-year term created when Beth Ludwig resigned.

Kevin Mahler, who was running as an Independent, defeated the endorsed Republican candidate, Gary Wenig. The Democrats did not nominate a candidate for the special election.

“I greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone who helped with my campaign,” Mr. Mahler said. “As a school director, I will work hard to represent the best interests of the whole NA community.”

With the election, seven of the nine school board seats will be held by McCandless residents. Mr. Schwartzmier lives in Franklin Park, while board President Maureen Grosheider lives in Marshall. Linda Bishop, who also lives in Marshall, did not seek re-election.
