Thursday: Meet Woodside school board candidates

 

Three candidates for two seats on the board of the Woodside Elementary School District will participate in an election forum at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, in the school's Wildcat Room at 3195 Woodside Road in Woodside.

The forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of South San Mateo County.

The candidates are incumbent Kevin Johnson, who is completing his first four-year term on the board; Silvia Edwards, who was appointed to fill the remainder of board member Rudy Driscoll's term after his resignation in June; and Joel Hornstein, a district parent who had also applied to be appointed to the board.

All three candidates are parents of children at the school. Mr. Johnson has an eighth- and fourth-grader; Mr. Hornstein, a fifth-, third- and first-grader; and Ms. Edwards, a second-grader and two kindergartners.

All the candidates have law degrees. Mr. Johnson is a practicing attorney with Quinn Emanuel in Redwood Shores. Mr. Hornstein is an entrepreneur and investor and school volunteer. Ms. Edwards is a community volunteer and former construction manager.
