Melvoin Cruising to LAUSD Board Reelection; Gonez May Need Runoff


Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education member Nick Melvoin was heading toward another term Tuesday evening, while fellow incumbent Kelly Gonez was leading in her reelection bid, but falling short of the mark needed to avoid a November runoff.

Melvoin easily outpaced two challengers — electrical engineer Gentille Barkhardarian and teacher Tracey Schroeder — to retain his District 4 seat, which represents parts of the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles and stretches south to Westchester. Melvoin had a major advantage in fundraising and was anticipated to easily win another term.

Gonez was also considered a favorite in District 6, which includes areas such as Sun Valley, San Fernando, Mission Hills, Panorama City and North Hollywood. As the vote tally continued Tuesday night, however, Gonez had just 49% of the vote — short of topping the 50% mark needed to avoid a November runoff.
