Three vie for two open spots on school board

In the upcoming elections for the Los Gatos Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) School Board on Nov. 4, three candidates will be vying for two available positions. Saratogans can vote for school board elections at the same time they are voting for the presidential election.

The job of the school board is to oversee educational policies in Los Gatos and Saratoga.

Out of the three candidates, Lorrie Wernick and Rosemary Rossi are the two incumbents in the race.

Wernick, who is currently the Principal of William Regnart Elementary School in Los Gatos, was elected as President in 1996 and 2004. Wernick has accumulated over 20 years of experience in education and served on several boards and committees.

“I know how to work with all parties involved to create policies and make decisions that are practical, positive and effective,” said Wernick in an interview with Saratoga News.

Rossi, an active member of public education, was elected Vice President in 2004. Her goals for the school board are to “provide a rigorous curriculum for all students, continue fiscal policies to ensure financial stability, and improve the use of technology.”

Robert Zager, the new candidate, hopes to become the Governing Board Member. Zager feels that since the primary responsibility of the board is financial oversight, his 25 years of business experience will be useful to the board members.

“I am excited about the prospect of serving as a member,” said Zager.
