With the filing deadline tomorrow, a new candidate has emerged to challenge Warren Fletcher as president of UTLA.
Kevin Mottus, who frequently appears at LA Unified school board meetings to warn of adverse health effects of wireless digital devices, is the latest among three challengers to file for running, according to the union’s most recent list of candidates.
The others are David R. Garcia and Alex Caputo-Pearl.
Mottus has worked as a psychiatric social worker at the School Mental Health Department of LA Unified, focusing on students with behavioral problems. He is also a registered coach for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and helps children and adults with learning disabilities and dyslexia.
He was recently profiled in the USC newspaper, Neon Tommy.
UTLA elections for president, six other executive officer positions and the UTLA Board of Directors will be conducted during the first quarter of 2014.
