MEET YOUR CANDIDATE
Corey Mango and his wife, Linda, came to Allendale in 2004, immersed themselves in the community, and started a family. Their children graduated from Allendale High School in 2018 and 2020.
Corey firmly believes in Michigan Revised School Code 380.10, which states: “It is the natural, fundamental right of parents and legal guardians to determine and direct the care, teaching, and education of their children. The public schools of this state serve the needs of the pupils by cooperating with the pupil’s parents and legal guardians to develop the pupil’s intellectual capabilities and vocational skills in a safe and positive environment.”
As a school board member, Corey seeks to do the following:
- Give parents and teachers a voice on how best to teach individual student needs.
- Bring decisive action to the school board. Encourage leadership beneath the board of directors to confront and make tough decisions when needed.
- Provide accountability and an action plan to resolve the 20%+ loss of Allendale High School teachers in 2021.
- Increase school board presence in our schools and communication with staff and parents.
- Restore the district’s relationship with homeschool families as a resource and partner, which has declined due to Allendale’s handling of the pandemic and push for a new direction for sexual education.
Corey will always be an advocate for our community to work together and listen to one another.
As a Manufacturing Engineer, Corey has presented and worked on large budget projects in a team environment with multiple levels of the organization— management, engineers, supervisors, and manufacturing members. Every project resulted in a team consensus, accurate timeline, and a balanced budget. Corey believes the key to a successful project is to listen to diverse points of view, and educate before moving forward.
Corey has coached student athletes for the past 18 years, mentoring numerous youth in our community. By coaching with a servant leadership style, Corey has been able to learn how to best work with each athlete by observing and listening to both the athlete and their parents.
Corey also enjoys golf, football, and his vintage truck.
