Villaraigosa Poised to Take Over LA School Board

Brady Westwater writing at LA Citywatch says that Mayor Villaraigosa has won his battle to take over the school board; the teachers' union has essentially given up the ghost by pulling a half million dollars in funding to support incumbent Jon Lauritzen over the Mayor's candidate, attorney Tamar Galatzan. Westwater also predicts that Villaraigosa backed Richard Vladovic will win in the 7th District. With Galatzan and Vladovic joining Yolie Flores-Aguilar and Monica Garcia who were elected previously, this gives the Mayor full control of the Board of Education.
