Good news to share about Rostra’s earlier story on an “open” seat at the five-member San Diego Community College Board! Education reformers and GOP forces responded almost immediately to SD Rostra’s Action Alert, and key potential candidates are now weighing the options this weekend. Republican leaders take the opportunity seriously. I can’t disclose the potential names yet, but “Watch this Space” for details soon. The filing deadline is Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 5:00 pm in the Registrar of Voters office, 5201-I Ruffin Road, Kearny Mesa.
