There was no excitement or celebration when Lori Alhadeff and Ryan Petty filed their candidacy papers Tuesday morning to run for Broward County School Board. Alhadeff is running for a seat based in Parkland, while Petty is running for a county-wide seat.

"I'm running so I can represent parents all over the district who deserve to have their children come home to them", said Petty, who lost his daughter, Alaina, 14, in the shooting. The video released Thursday, March 15, shows Peterson going toward the high school building while a gunman massacred 17 students and staff members, but stayed outside with his handgun drawn. Alhadeff also said discipline systems at the district need to be "revamped" because they have "gone from the complete extremes-from over-disciplining kids to not disciplining kids, which we have now".

The group is also supporting former Stoneman Douglas teacher Richard Mendelsonagainst incumbent Laurie Rich Levinson for the District 6 seat, which includes Weston, Cooper City and Davie.

Alhadeff, 43, whose daughter Alyssa was killed, is expected to run for the District 4 seat, which Abby Freedman, 51, now occupies.
