The newly launched Mat-Su chapter of Moms for Liberty is backing two conservatives Mat-Su School Board candidates for reelection – Ole Larson and Kathy McCollum.
Earlier this month, the group issued an official endorsement for Larson, who is attempting to stave off a strong challenge from hard-left candidate Dianne Shibe. McCollum, is also backed by Moms for Liberty, with several of the group’s recent Facebook posts urging members support her. McCollum is trying to defend her seat against left-leaning candidate Sydney Zuyus.
“With Kathy’s extensive experience of working with the school district, we will work towards a brighter future for our children’s education,” the group’s website states. “Re-Elect Kathy McCollum for School Board by November 7th!”
The endorsement for Larson states that he “has proven himself in his fight for parental rights. Get out and vote November 7, 2023!”
Mat-Su Moms for Liberty officially launched earlier this year. It is part of a network of more than 300 chapters in 47 states with 120,000 members.

The organization’s main goal is to stand up for parental rights at all levels of government and to inspire residents to “stoke the fires of liberty.”
Across the country, Moms for Liberty chapters work to remove woke policies and controversial curriculum from public schools and libraries throughout the nation.
Mat-Su’s Moms for Liberty meets monthly to discuss key public policy issues and proposals, review school curriculum, highlight important political races and strategize ways of advancing the group’s larger mission. Members are encouraged to attend local school board and other governmental meetings as issues arise.
