LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia
Monica Garcia's Chief of Staff Luis Sanchez
Do the citizens of Los Angeles Unified School District's Area 5 deserve a union-back candidate in Bennett Kayser or School Board President Monica Garcia's Chief of Staff Luis Sanchez? Kayser is a veteran of past LAUSD elections, losing to out-going District 5 School Board Rep Yolie Flores-Aguilar in 2007. Sanchez is the latest "anointed one" via the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa/ Councilman Jose Huizar faction in Boyle Heights.and served the Mayor well as an Recreation and Parks Commissioner.
More after the Jump.
In addion to Sanchez and Kayser, two other candidates former UTLA Endorsee John Fernandez and Mt. Washington Education Advocate Scott Folsom, who is running as a write-in candidate, make it a strong possibility that this race goes to a runoff.
Thus, do we need an "Mini Monica" who acts as a Garcia/Huizar/Villaraigosa's puppet?
