Two show interest in running for school boards

Voters may fill three seats on each of two local school district boards, but a week into the month-long filing period for those offices, the county Elections Office hasn't exactly had to raise the flood gates.

As of July 17, an incumbent on the Las Lomitas School District board had taken out papers, and a parent in the Menlo Park City School District had filed papers to run for a seat on that board.

Stacy Jones, who applied for appointment to an open seat on the Menlo Park board in February but was passed over, has filed papers to run for a seat in November. Ms. Jones is co-chair of the district's council. She has three children in district schools.

Incumbent Richard Ginn had taken out papers for the Las Lomitas Elementary School District board as of July 17.

The filing period to run for office in the Nov. 3 election runs through Friday, Aug. 8, but will be extended through Wednesday, Aug. 13, in races where an incumbent is eligible to run but does not file.
