Election more likely for Menlo Park school board


Ana C. Uribe-Ruiz, a Menlo Park mother and business owner, has taken out qualifying papers to run for the Menlo Park City Elementary School District, according to a July 29 roster of candidates at the website of the San Mateo County Registrar of Voters.

If she returns the papers and becomes qualified for election, Ms. Uribe-Ruiz will join incumbent Laura Linkletter Rich, former board member Terry Thygesen, and community volunteer Joan Lambert in a contest for three seats on the five-member board.

Three seats are also open for the board of the Las Lomitas Elementary School District, which covers western parts of Menlo Park and Atherton as well as Ladera and other unincorporated communities.

In this district, just two candidates have entered their names: 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.
