Jerry Weinstein, a nine-year veteran of the Beverly Hills Board of Education, has announced that he will not seek reelection in November.
His decision makes school board President Fred Stern the only incumbent running for one of two open slots on the board.
Other candidates are Lora Klinger, a former teacher who ran unsuccessfully two years ago; Rhea Kohan, an author and former teacher, and Dana Tomarken, the director of the Beverly Hills Education Foundation and daughter of City Councilwoman Annabelle Heiferman.
The filing deadline is 5 p.m. Friday.
School finances are expected to be the major campaign issue this fall. School officials are considering massive cuts in the district's $25-million budget. They estimate that at the current rate of spending and with its present resources, the district will have to trim $5 million from the budget by 1986.
