Four running for three seats in EUSD election


Three incumbents and one challenger are vying for the three open Encinitas Union School District board seats.

The deadline to file for November’s election was Aug. 9.

Candidate Jennifer Hamler joins incumbents Emily Andrade, Gregg Sonken and Marla Strich, who were elected in 2010, in the race.

Hamler said in an email July 31 she’s concerned with the implementation of new Common Core Standards for math, which is one of the reasons she’s running.

The candidates didn’t report any campaign contributions from the beginning of the year to June 30, the most recent disclosure period.

The EUSD Board of Trustees has five members.

In the Cardiff School District, incumbents Mark Whitehouse, David Clark and Siena Randall are running unopposed, so they’ll retain their seats.
