Peter L. Hertan, David Guidry and incumbent Cynthia Chang won the three open spots up for election on the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District’s school board in the midterm elections on Nov. 6.

Out of the four candidates, Chang came in first with 35 percent of the votes and Hertan and Guidry tied for second with 22 percent of the votes. Denise Ramon Herrera finished last with 18 percent of the votes.

Trustee Rosemary Rossi and vice president Katherine Tseng were not up for re-election and will remain on the board until their terms expire in 2020. According to Robin Mano, the outgoing president of the school board (2014-2018), the school board’s primary responsibilities are “setting a direction for the district, providing a structure, ensuring accountability and providing community leadership.”
