LA School Report | November 10, 2014



School BoardIt’s shaping up to be a furious campaign next year. With a few late additions at Saturday’s filing deadline, four incumbents plus 14 other people are now competing for the four LA Unified school board seats coming up in 2015.

The latest to enter the race are two more challengers in District 5 — James C. O’Gabhann III, a teacher, and Benjamin Luis Jimenez, a storekeeper — and one more in District 3 — Mario Burrell, a teacher — making those two districts the most populated for the March primary.

To sum up: George McKenna has one challenger in District 1 Tamar Galatzan has six in District 3; Bennett Kayser has four in District 5, and board President Richard Vladovic has two in District 7.

The complete list is available here.
