NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg spends $1 million on LAUSD school board races

bloombergDaily News – by Barbara Jones

The Coalition for School Reform, which is supporting a slate of candidates in the March 5 primary for three LAUSD board seats, announced today it had received a $1 million donation from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The donation nearly doubles the total reported in the coffers of the Independent Expendture Committee, which is supporting incumbent Monica Garcia in District 2, challenger Kate Anderson in District 4 and candidate Antonio Sanchez in District 6.

Garcia faces three challengers in her bid for re-election, while Sanchez is facing off against two other candidates in the race to succeed board member Nury Martinez, who is not running. Anderson is challenging board member Steve Zimmer.
