No Endorsement in District 6

We have decided to make no endorsement in District 6. GO’s endorsement process involved nearly 100 community members participating in a candidate interview day, where we were able to hear from the candidates on a number of issues affecting our students and then provide feedback that was used for the endorsements. We heard from 2 candidates running for District 6 school board that day, and incumbent Shanthi Gonzales did not join the interview day. Since then, Director Gonzales is the only candidate who has qualified for the ballot and will face write-in challenger Anthony Wilson.
