Union Schedules Special Session To Reconsider Endorsements*
LA School Report | March 8, 2013
UTLA Vice President Gregg Solkovits told LA School Report shortly before Wednesday’s House of Representatives meeting that the topic of the dual endorsed candidates for District 6 — Antonio Sanchez and Monica Ratliff — would likely come up, and apparently it did.
The union didn’t decide to strip Sanchez of his endorsement immediately, but rather — according to a Friday morning web-chat with LA Times education reporter Howard Blume — re-interview the candidates.
Obviously, it would hurt Sanchez in some ways to lose the UTLA endorsement. But it’s not clear if that will happen — or how long it will take. *UPDATE: UTLA’s Suzanne Spurgeon tells us that PACE is meeting with the two candidates next week and that there is a special House of Representatives meeting on Wednesday. “If there is any decision, that would be the place for it.”
