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!

Substitute Superintendent Robert Scherrer of North Allegheny School District pursues public input on how his schools are performing.

He hosts monthly forums with parents, convenes regularly with business professionals and faith-based leaders, and asks committees of students, parents and community members to guide major decisions such as a plan to equip 2,100 students with iPads or laptops.

She obtained her baccalaureate degree from Washington & Jefferson College and then graduated from Duquesne University Law School. She began her legal career as a private defense attorney but ultimately moved to the Allegheny County Office of the District Attorney. In 2007, she was appointed to the position of Hearing Officer. In 2010, Ms. Filiaggi “retired” from the practice of law to raise her three children and support her family’s business, Sir Pizza. Nicholas (8th grade), Maggie (5th grade) and Anna (2nd grade) have all flourished, attending McKnight Elementary and Ingomar Middle School.

Over the past several years, Ms. Filiaggi applied to fill the two vacancies on the NA School Board and she currently serves on three District-wide committees—the Citizen’s Advisory Committee, the Technology Advisory Committee, and the Gifted Advisory Committee.

With three generations of her family residing in the North Allegheny School District, Ms. Filiaggi understands the concerns of both families with school-age children as well as retirees living on fixed incomes. In seeking the two-year term of School Director, she hopes to bring the financial acumen that comes with running a successful business to District operations. Her close connection with district initiatives and her legal and business backgrounds will be assets to District leadership and will help the North Allegheny School District maintain its course on the dual pathway of fiscal responsibility and continued student excellence.

Ms. Filiaggi is running for the two-year seat.
