5 candidates, 3 seats in LASD race

The deadline to run for three open seats on the Los Altos School District board of trustees came and went Wednesday, and five candidates will be competing for the spots in the Nov. 3 election.

Trustees David Pefley, David Luskin and Mark Goines' terms all expire in November, but only Goines is running again in November. Meanwhile, Douglas Smith, John Radford, Tamara Logan and Rowene Hood have all filed papers to run for one of the open seats, according to county election officials.

I thought John Radford was a BCS supporter as well as a proponent of Hills seceding from LASD? He's now running to be an LASD board member?

What am I not getting???

You are right about John. I think he wants to support the charter school as a member of the school board. I'm sure he will be a more effective charter advocate in this position.
