School Board Elections to Watch Nov. 2

We’re watching a couple of interesting school board races in California this Tuesday.

There’s a special election for Trustee Area 4 on the Moreno Valley Unified school board in Riverside County. The candidates are Robert Alexander, Brandy Clark, and Viridiana Elizalde. Read about the candidates’ positions on everything from pandemic restrictions to the budget at the Press-Enterprise

The San Dieguito Union High School District is holding an election for Area 5, which includes the neighborhoods of Carmel Valley and Pacific Highlands Ranch. The three candidates are UC San Diego executive director of development for health sciences Julie Bronstein, former Area 5 Trustee Ty Humes, and and ICIARA co-founder Lea Wolf.

The candidates discussed their priorities with the Del Mar Times here. In addition to the pandemic and personnel issues, so-called Critical Race Theory is a hot button issue at SDUSD. Lea Wolf’s website boasts that she is the only candidate in the race that has signed a pledge to oppose CRT.
