Mister Phillips has done what everyone expected and announced another run for WCCUSD school board. Here’s the official announcement on his candidate Facebook page.
The next endorsement round for WCCUSD school board candidates looks like it will be Education Matters on July 13th. (The official filing period begins on July 18th.)
What triggered my previous post was the discovery that the teachers union for West Contra Costa, the United Teachers of Richmond (UTR), has already made an endorsement (or at least half of one) for the November race. Here’s the timeline as I understand it:
The primaries are over. On November 8th the general election will come. Two seats are up at that time on the WCCUSD school board, two seats currently held by Randy Enos and Todd Groves who have both served a single term.
I spent 4 years on the WCCUSD Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee starting in January 2011. Then in January 2015, I decided to take a break from district involvement after almost 10 years in various school district committee and PTA positions in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. I also felt it was important to make room for new people to contribute. Now, I’m back.
