Parent activist Scott Folsom (4 LA Kids) suggests that there could be a big change in the makeup of the LAUSD board after the Spring elections — and is throwing his own name into the ring as a candidate (again).
“History tells us school boards prefer to appoint their own superintendent when their membership changes,” writes the Deasy critic (pictured left). “Mayor Tony… is termed out – and his coattails don’t seem to extend into the future.”
Zimmer will face one or several challenges, but Martinez is out and Garcia already has four declared opponents. Or, make that five. Folsom has run before — most recently as a District 5 write-in candidate last year.
