Imperial Valley Have Chosen a New Breed of Elected Officials

By Mario Conde

The election is come and gone and the people of the Imperial Valley have chosen a new breed of elected officials in the Valley.

In the Calexico School Board race, Norma Aguilar is on first place with 1,667 votes followed by Ruth Duarte with 1,228 and in third is Joong Kim with 1,379. Tony Valenzuela takes fourth place in the School Board race. Since the resignation of Ruben De La Rosa last month it’s been speculated that the board could appoint the fourth runner up to fill the two year term De La Rosa had left. The new board will have to decide what direction to take.
