Timothy Mallory is challenging Mark Wooster for his District 2 seat on the Isle of Wight County School Board. Both candidates have filed with the Isle of Wight County Registrar’s Office ahead of the June 20 deadline to get their names on the November ballot, according to Registrar Lisa Betterton.
Mallory, an Air Force veteran and former police officer who has worked for decades in school safety at the K-12 and college level, has made security central to his campaign. “With the support of the community, I would like to work together to build and create safer schools, and prioritize the need for mental health programs and resources for students and staff,” Mallory said. Mallory has also pledged to address teacher shortages and competitive pay.
“I will positively fight for students, parents and teachers to fulfill the promise of public education for all students,” Mallory said. This, he said, will include “preparing, communicating, collaborating and shaping the future.” Mallory, a resident of Carrollton, is currently the director of public safety and security services for Norfolk Public Schools.
