Las Lomitas district school board: one seat too close to call

Ann Jaquith and Jay Siegel were elected Nov. 2 to four-year terms on the school board of the Las Lomitas Elementary School District. The third spot is too close to call and could change when all ballots — including absentee ballots dropped off on election day — are counted

Four candidates contended for three seats. The latest count is: Ann Jaquith, 2,175; Jay Siegel, 1,851; Richard Ginn, 1,696; and Mark Reinstra, 1,610.

Ms. Jaquith, an educator and educational researcher at Stanford University, will be the only board member with a background in education.

Mr. Siegel, appointed to the five-member school board in 2009, was the only current member running.

Mr. Ginn, who has been a volunteer coach for his son's soccer team, applied for a board seat in 2009 when a trustee resigned, but wasn't chosen. He works in the financial industry.

Mr. Reinstra, who has volunteered in the classroom and with the Las Lomitas Education Foundation, is an attorney.
