Election 2011: Two more West Seattle school-board candidates

checkbox.jpgThe day after Marty McLaren received the 34th District Democrats‘ endorsement for West Seattle’s seat on the Seattle Public Schools board, over incumbent Steve Sundquist, two more challengers filed to run against him. Today is the final day for candidate filings in the August 16th primary races, and Joy Anderson and Charita Dumas have joined McLaren and Sundquist in the race for the District 6 seat. Both are West Seattleites who were involved in the legal fight to stop the closure of Cooper Elementary School (here’s a story from two years ago). Three other school-board seats are on the ballot this year, and each incumbent in those races has at least two challengers so far.

    I believe an Alki parent suggested a debate (in comment section of Fairmount Park reopening post)… let’s get that going! Appears to be some great candidates.

    Who knew there were so many masochists in our fair city?
