Eight days remain for at least one more La Canada resident to file a declaration of candidacy for one of the two seats opening up on the La Canada school board. If no one steps up, the Nov. 8 election will be canceled and these two seats will be uncontested for the third time since 2003. They will be filed by the two candidates who have filed.
To date, incumbent Jeanne Broberg and first-time candidate Ellen Multari have declared their candidacies. Cindy Wilcox, like Broberg a board incumbent, declared in March that she would not seek a third term.
Wilcox said she thinks it’s time for new leadership from people more in touch with the district’s current situation to step up. Since her youngest child graduated the school system in 2008, Wilcox feels that keeping in touch with parents has become increasingly difficult.
