Menlo Park school board: Rich, Thygesen, Lambert elected


Laura Linkletter Rich, Terry Thygesen and Joan Lambert were elected Tuesday to four-year terms on the school board of the Menlo Park City School District.

Four candidates were running for three seats. The vote, with all precincts reporting, is: Ms. Rich, 4,405; Ms. Thygesen, 3,714; Ms. Lambert, 3,662; and Ana Uribe-Ruiz, 2,248.

This will be Ms. Rich's fourth term on the board. Although her children are now adults, she said she wanted to serve one more term to see some key projects through to completion.

Ms. Thygesen, who was a school board member from 2000 to 2008, took a two-year break and will begin her third term next month.

Ms. Lambert will begin her first term on the board next month. She has been an active volunteer in three of the district's four schools, as a board member of the nonprofit school foundation, and as one of the leaders in the Measure C parcel tax campaign.
