Two incumbents and one challenger have filed declarations of intention to run for the two four-year terms that will be at stake in the Alhambra school board election Nov. 4.
The incumbents are Dora Padilla, a homemaker who lives in Alhambra, and Charles Scanlon, a retired educator who lives in San Gabriel. Also filing a declaration before Friday's deadline was Joseph Castro, a bank executive from Alhambra. To qualify for the ballot, the candidates must clear one more hurdle by filing nomination papers by July 28.
Board members, who govern both Alhambra elementary schools and the Alhambra High School District, are elected at large in the high school district, which covers parts of Monterey Park, Rosemead and San Gabriel as well as Alhambra.
