St. Louis Park – As of 8 a.m., Tuesday, July 30, C. Colin Cox is a candidate for St. Louis Park Public Schools (School District 283) school board. Cox was the first person to file his affidavit for candidacy for school board.
“I’m looking forward to meeting with residents – young and old, long-time or new, parents or non-parents – to learn what’s important to them and share my vision for our amazing St. Louis Park schools,” said Colin Cox.
Cox has been involved with St. Louis Park Public Schools for several years. Most recently he served as a parent representative for the district’s school start-end times study. He served a similar role on the district’s learning design team, which identified the facility improvements needed to bring St. Louis Park schools up to current standards and prepare the district for the future.
Cox was also one of the five co-chairs for the successful parent grassroots campaign that helped pass the district’s two referenda questions in the 2017 election with an overwhelming majority. He has had other roles in the district, including participating in the district’s parent advisory committee and volunteering in the schools, especially at Aquila Elementary, where his son attended.
Cox studied communications and secondary education at Marquette University and, following graduation, he worked in suburban Chicago area schools for two years. He has worked as a substitute teacher with children of all grade levels, including in St. Louis Park Public Schools.
Beyond his commitment to St. Louis Park Schools, Cox has served as a St. Louis Park representative on the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District’s Citizens Advisory Committee and as president of the South Oak Hill Neighborhood Association.
