And the candidates are …

Well, it’s now official (we think): We’ve got five candidates running for three school board seats this fall. Incumbents David Forbes and Janet Gibson are on the list, as are Ron Mooney, the Alameda Education Foundation secretary who has helped pass two parcel taxes for the schools; former Washington School principal Niel Tam; and Alameda PTA head Trish Spencer. And we’ve got two folks, incumbent Jordan Battani and one J. Michael McCormick, to take two seats on the city’s healthcare district board (apparently, this one won’t be on the ballot). We’ll have all sorts of updates as the race progresses. Stay tuned.
