“We are extremely proud to issue endorsements in our local Los Alamos Public Schools  Board of Education races. Specifically, we are endorsing candidates Melanie Colgan, Erin Green, Ellen Spector, and  Antonio Jaurigue for Districts 1, 2, 4, and 5, respectively. Each of these candidates stood out  during the interview process and have shown their deep commitment to the LAPS  community, hardworking public educators, and most importantly, the students we serve  every day,” said Engelbrecht. “Throughout the candidate endorsement process, these candidates demonstrated they  have the knowledge, experience, and plan of delivering and executing the best policies for  our district.”

“Additionally, these endorsements represent the preferred candidates of a cross-section of  the educators that LAFSE represents, and we are proud to say that this process was  transparent, inclusive, and student-focused throughout our conversations with candidates.  Each candidate showed a willingness to share what they know and be open to feedback and  education by our committee, each of whom donated their time and expertise in this  process,” said Pereyra. 

The LAFSE Committee on Political Education is made up of both officers and rank-and-file members of LAFSE. All candidates for LAPS Board of Education were offered the opportunity to participate in endorsement interviews.
