Hillsborough School Board endorsements
School Board hopefuls have until noon tomorrow to qualify for the election. But it's already too late to get endorsed by the district's union of blue collar workers, the Hillsborough Schools Employees Federation.
HSEF is backing these candidates: District 1: Susan Valdes (incumbent), District 5: Doretha Edgecomb (incumbent), District 7: Stephen Gorham.
It's noteworthy that the union is backing Gorham over Carol Kurdell, a 16-year-veteran facing two challengers. This year's races are shaping up to be quite competitive. Jack Lamb is the only incumbent without a competitor.
