Council, LASD, hospital board candidates surface


Three additional local candidates last week declared their intent to run in the Nov. 4 election.

Incumbents Tammy Logan of the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees and Dave Reeder of the El Camino Healthcare District Board of Directors said they plan to run for re-election. Former Los Altos Hills City Councilman Jean Mordo, now a Los Altos resident, plans to run for a seat on the Los Altos City Council.

Logan, who has served on the school board the past four and a half years, said the district needs the “experienced leadership” she has provided.

“Our students are participating in a program of unprecedented quality,” she said in a statement. “It is important that we sustain this progress, and that is why I have decided to run.”

Four candidates so far are vying for three open seats on the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees. Three challengers – Martha McClatchie, Vladimir Ivanovic and Sangeeth Peruri – have already announced their candidacies.

Reeder, a hospital director since 1994, seeks his fifth four-year term on the five-member district board. He cited a need to see through El Camino’s revamped strategic plan among his reasons for running. Current Mountain View City Councilwoman Margaret Abe-Koga has already declared her bid to run for one of the two open seats on the hospital district board.

Mordo’s decision makes him the first challenger to step forward for one of the two seats open on the Los Altos council. Incumbent Councilman Jarrett Fishpaw has stated that he plans to seek re-election.

The candidate filing deadline is Aug. 8.
