Jason Morimoto and Jody Leng are ahead to fill two open seats on the Las Lomitas Elementary School District's governing board, according to the latest results posted at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5.

With more than 70% of votes counted, Morimoto was leading with 40.2% of the vote, Leng had nearly 33% and Molly Finn had nearly 28%, according to semi-official results posted by the San Mateo County Elections Office. These results include all ballots except for provisional ballots and a portion of vote-by-mail ballots.

Morimoto, Leng and Finn are all newcomers, vying for the open seats on the board that governs Las Lomitas Elementary School in Atherton and La Entrada Middle School in Menlo Park.

A financial executive, Morimoto said closing equity gaps in the district is his top priority. He said he also hopes to focus on financial oversight and COVID-19 safety.

Leng is an anesthesiologist who was the only physician on the Las Lomitas Pandemic Recovery Planning Committee, which aided in the district's COVID-19 response.
