In a March 30 editorial you endorsed three persons for the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustee vacancies. Two of the seats are contested. I have no quarrel with your right to make recommendations, but I am disappointed in the naive criteria you used to make your selection.

With just a few days left until Tuesday's election, the low-profile but spirited contests for two seats on the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees have turned into debates over who could best steer the district through its continuing financial storms. In the race for Office No. 6, the opponents--incumbent Althea Baker, 43, and challenger Peter C. Halt, 32, a certified public accountant--are polite, each taking care not to say anything mean about the other in public.

The teachers union appeared to be winning a friendly majority on the Board of Education of the Los Angeles Unified School District as voters Tuesday reelected incumbent Julie Korenstein and nearly complete results showed incumbent Alan Gershman losing narrowly to Mark Slavkin. Slavkin held a slim but steady lead and claimed victory in the Westside race at 11 p.m. "The old era is gone. Alan Gershman was a symbol of the old era. Now we can get to work tomorrow for the new era," Slavkin said.
