TUSD Governing Board Candidate Forum
6 candidates are vying for 2 open seats on TUSD Governing Board. Listen to them tonight to see whom to vote for in the General Election on Nov. 8, 2022. These are nonpartisan, volunteer positions.
Still sitting on the board are Natalie Luna Rose, Dr. Ravi Shah, Sadie Shaw — all three elected in Nov. 2020. Adelita Grijalva who served 5 terms and Leila Counts who served one term, are not running for re-election.
My previous post on this race, with photos of the 6 candidates (with campaign websites):
Who’s running in 2022:
Jennifer Eckstrom, former Mayor & Councilmember of South Tucson
Luis A. Gonzales, former State Senator & PCC Governing Bd. member
Val Romero, ran for Ward 6 Council as Independent in 2021
Vote wisely on or before Nov. 8, 2022. More info on the TUSD Governing Board: Tucson Unified Governing Board (tusd1.org)
