ABC School Board Candidates Square Off at AAUW Forum By Jerry Bernstein



The campaign to elect five members SCHOOL ED D FI to the ABC School Board on Nov. 8 has already brought in more than $125,000 in contributions, for a job that compensates its members $733.95 per month. Records obtained at Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters Office by Los Cerritos Community News show that the 11 candidates running for either a fouryear full term, or for a two year term are on course to reach over $200,000.00. Candidates have also contributed thousands of personal loans and some have also contributed thousands more from businesses in which they have a vested financial interest or ownership. Some of the biggest donations have been made to the four candidates hoping to replace former ABC School Board Member Mark Pulido, who was elected to the Cerritos City Council in March. The winner of the two year unexpired term will have to hit the campaign trail again in 2013 if they plan to seek re-election to a four year term.. ABC Federation of Teachers raised from its rank and file members $43,668 so far this year and have spent $22,770 as of Sept. 24, in support of the reelection campaigns of incumbants Law, Spitzer, Tse, Reyes, and Johnson. The major donor to the ABC Federation of Teacher Committee on Political Education was a $5,000 contribution from the ABCFT union General Fund. So far this calendar year, the ABCFT has donated $25,000 to their slate of five school board hopefuls. The ABCFT has hired Los Angeles political consultant Eric Hacopian, and his firm EDH and Associates out of Studio City to oversee their coordinated campaign effort and have so far paid out $4,000 for their services which includes campaign mailings to voters throughout Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, East Lakewood and South Norwalk.
