Patz, Merriam, Affeldt: In
Three seats are up for election and the endorsement vote by RULE shows a desire to effect change for Emery. The rejection of long time incumbent Miguel Dwin combined with the approval of Mr Patz and Mr Merriam represents the maximum dissatisfaction with the School Board possible given that three choices are available to voters in a field of four candidates.
Board member Christian Patz was temporarily appointed by a vote of the Board in the spring to replace outgoing member Josh Simon. November 4th will be Mr Patz' and Mr Merriam's first time facing Emeryville voters.
