Laila Borokhim for School Board

Postby Shorty » Thu Dec 27, 2018 8:04 am

Could be an interesting race.

Local restaurateur Laila Borokhim running for School Board

"Though she’s set to open a new Persian restaurant on Monroe Street on Jan. 1, 2019, chef Laila Borokhim will look to turn in signatures by Jan. 2 for another venture: running for a seat on the Madison School Board. Borokhim filed paperwork with the city clerk’s office on Wednesday to run for Seat 4 on the Madison School Board. Seat 4, currently held by James Howard, will have a new member this spring as Howard is stepping down after completing three terms on the seven-person School Board.

Two other candidates have already started campaigning for the vacant Seat 4. GSAFE co-executive director Ali Muldrow is running in the race along with David Blaska, a former Dane County Supervisor and conservative blogger. If all three candidates turn in 200 nomination signatures by the Jan. 2 deadline, they’ll face off in a primary on Feb. 19. The general election is April 2."

I wonder which one of the other two she'll draw the most votes away from.

I hope Blaska doesn't make it past the primary.

Is it a primary? I thought it was the actual election and the top vote-getter takes office. Hence my concern that Blaska might get in if the other two candidates split the non-wingnut vote.

I think you're right as I could only find a date for the general election.

It's right there in the story:
" If all three candidates turn in 200 nomination signatures by the Jan. 2 deadline, they’ll face off in a primary on Feb. 19. The general election is April 2."

Looks like it is time for me to go to the eye doctor, but when it comes to screwing with elections I wouldn't put anything past the wrecking crew in the Legislature in recent years.
