School board candidates toss in hats

The candidate rosters have begun to fill for the elections in November to determine the make-up of the governing boards for the Menlo Park and Las Lomitas elementary school districts, according to the website for the San Mateo County Registrar of Voters.

Each school district has a five-member board with three seats to fill.

For the Las Lomitas district, which covers western parts of Menlo Park and Atherton as well as Ladera and other unincorporated communities, the candidates as of Friday, July 16, were incumbent Jay Siegel and Richard Ginn, a managing director and the chief financial officer of Costella Kirsch, a venture capital firm in West Menlo Park.

For the Menlo Park district, incumbent Laura Linkletter Rich is running again, as is former board member Terry Thygesen. Community volunteer Joan Lambert is the third candidate for this board.
