2 vie for seat on community college board

first_imgWhile the race for two seats on the Los Angeles Unified School District has garnered more publicity, voters also will be asked to decide May 15 if an incumbent or a newcomer will win a spot on the Los Angeles Community College Board. Incumbent Georgia Mercer, a trustee since 1989, was forced into a runoff with retired sheriff’s Deputy Roy Burns of Reseda, who was the top vote-getter of three challengers she faced in the March primary. Mercer received 46 percent of the vote and Burns got 32 percent. Challengers Mike Rives and Hanna Hajjar received 11 and 10 percent, respectively. Mercer and Burns each said they are disappointed they didn’t capture more than 50 percent of the vote, which would have averted a runoff. Los Angeles Unified and the LACCD must pay a total of $8 million for the upcoming election, which is expected to have very low turnout. “My greatest opponent, of course, is voter apathy,” said Mercer, who is now president of the board. “But this time, voters have a choice between someone with experience and someone with no experience.” Finance campaign disclosures filed Thursday show that Mercer raised a total of $92,606, while Burns has $4,339. Burns has been endorsed by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich and the Los Angeles County Republican Party. Mercer has been endorsed by Los Angeles City Council members Dennis Zine and Greig Smith, and by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan. “It’s a real frustrating campaign, because we’re expecting 4 percent voter turnout,” Burns said. “It’s sad this election will be decided by 30,000 voters.” Burns was one of four Republican challengers who ran against what they called the board’s mishandling of bond measures that voters passed in 2001 and 2003. The $2 billion in bond money is for construction and upgrading costs at the district’s nine campuses, but critics said trustees have wasted both time and money. Board members blame delays on high construction costs and bureaucratic red tape at the state level. Community colleges are state facilities. Also up for grabs on the May ballot are two Los Angeles Unified school board seats. Jon Lauritzen and Tamar Galatzan are vying for the District 3 seat. And Richard Vladovic, who won 46 percent of the vote in District 7, will face a runoff with Neal Kleiner, who received 32 percent. susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
