The final vote has been counted. It is a shame that one of our fundamental rights as U.S. citizens was not exercised by so many people.
In my race for re-election to the Contra Costa County Board of Education (area 4) I was defeated by Mike Maxwell. He seems a solid citizen and I wish him well. He ran a clean race.
If nothing else, this particular race, which saw all three trusteeships challenged, gave the public a better insight into the function of the County School Board.
I thank those who supported me.
