2 Critics of District to Run for Pasadena School Board

November 24, 1998

PASADENA — Two outspoken critics of the Pasadena Unified School District have taken out nomination papers to run for the school board.

Steven Lamb, an Altadena town councilman, is challenging incumbent George Van Alstine. John Laraway, a parent who is suing the district, is challenging board member Jackie Jacobs.

Lamb has for several months participated in a series of protests against the district over a shortage of books and poor academic performance.

Laraway was accused by district officials in April of making threats while he was reviewing public documents at the district headquarters.

The district unsuccessfully filed for a temporary restraining order against him.
