Two incumbents win school board election

November 18, 2008 — by Anna Shen

The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) school board election took place on Nov. 4. The election involved three candidates, incumbents Lorrie Wernick and Rosemary Rossi, and Saratogan parent Robert Zager, who vied for two positions. The winners were Wernick and Rossi.

Rossi, receiving the most votes, said she hopes to “provide a rigorous curriculum for students, continue policies to ensure financial stability and improve the use of technology in teaching and learning.” Rossi received 10,716 votes with 37.7 percent of the Saratogan population.

Wernick, coming in very close to Rossi in votes, said she hopes to “meet the academic, social and emotional needs of students, assure that students are prepared and maintain the excellence of the high schools in [the] district.” Wernick received 10,094 votes with 35.5 percent of the Saratogan population.

Zager received 7,610 votes with 26.8 percent of the Saratogan population.

Although the members of the school board are finalized, their positions are not yet decided. The LGSUHSD school board will meet later in December to discuss their positions on the board.
