Betts has run for this seat twice before and is a community activist/part time teacher. Current incumbents are all seeking re-election for this nonpartisan, volunteer position on the TUSD Governing Board: Kristel Foster, Cam Juarez, and Mark Stegeman. Others who are interested in running are businessman Don Cotton (ran twice before) and political newcomer, educator Lori Riegel. Former PCC instructor Francis Saitta who has run for this position as well as PCC Governing Bd. is also considering a run again.
Although not a partisan race, all candidates so far running are registered Democrats, except for Mark Stegeman who is now an Independent/No Party affiliation.
