Election races now likely for local school boards

Four candidates are running for three board seats in the Menlo Park City Elementary School District.

Ana C. Uribe-Ruiz, a Menlo Park mother and business owner, has filed her papers and joins incumbent Laura Linkletter Rich, former board member Terry Thygesen, and community volunteer Joan Lambert in the November election contest for seats on the five-member school board.

Four candidates are also running for three open seats on the board of the Las Lomitas Elementary School District. Ann C. Jaquith, an educator, joins incumbent Jay Siegel, venture capitalist Richard Ginn, and corporate lawyer Mark Reinstra.

In each race, an incumbent has chosen not to run for re-election, which automatically extends the filing period by five days. Candidate papers must be filed with the Registrar of Voters by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11.
