When longtime incumbent Judy Hannemann declined to run again, the deadline to file for the upcoming Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District Board of Trustees election was extended by a few days. Mountain View resident Sanjay Dave registered as the seventh candidate on the Nov. 4 ballot.
Occupation: Computer engineering manager.
Children in district: A freshman daughter at Mountain View High and a fourth-grade son at Huff Elementary.
Reason for running: “It is important to have parents who have children in the school district be active participants in how their school is managed. One of the most important issues is to maintain financial stability and solvency so that we can continue to offer our students relevant courses that prepare them for higher education but also have programs that serve the diverse community needs we have.”
