In the neighboring Woodside Elementary School District, with three seats open, only one person, Claire Wilbur Pollioni, has taken out papers. None of the incumbents had done so as of early Monday, July 29.
Portola Valley district trustee Caitha Ambler filed as a candidate, and trustee Karen Ann Tate pulled papers. Both women were appointed to the board in April to replace Scott Parker and Ray Villareal, who had resigned in the previous weeks.
The third open seat is now held by Bill Youstra.
Open seats on the Woodside school board are now held by Wendy Crandall, Marc Tarpenning, and Bettina Pike.
Those wishing to run for elective office in the Nov. 5 election have until 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9, to file candidate papers. If an eligible incumbent doesn't file by that time, the filing period for that race will be extended until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.
