The Sacramento Bee announced its endorsements for Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Education Wednesday, and picked the most established candidate in each area.
In the race for the vacant Area 1 seat, the Bee endorsed Susan Parvis, who has been endorsed by retiring Trustee Bill Lugg.
"In this open seat, Susan Parvis has demonstrated that she knows the district and has put in her time as a volunteer," the Bee's editorial board wrote.
In the Area 6 race between Jake Rambo and Steve Ly, the Bee sided with appointed incumbent Rambo.
"Both are strong candidates, but Rambo has shown in his six months of service a grasp of complex issues," the Bee wrote.
Rambo said in an email that he was honored to have the Bee's recommendation.
In the three-candidate Area 7 race, the Bee went with Trustee Al Rowlett, who was appointed in 2009 and ran unopposed in 2010.
"Rowlett is a 'gold standard' board member, with a big heart and a constant presence at school sites," the Bee's editorial board said.
