Three candidates seeking seats on Yolo County Board of Education

Three candidates have filed papers for three different seats on the Yolo County Board of Education.

Incumbent Bill Owens is seeking to be re-elected in Trustee Area 2, representing the western portions of Davis, as well as Winters and unincorporated areas in between. He was unopposed in his first bid for office in 2010 and is serving as president of the board this year.

Owens is an attorney, policy analyst, mediator and community leader whose professional practice and community service focuses on helping communities and local, state and federal agencies create educationally supportive, healthy, safe and sustainable schools.

As an attorney, he works with school districts, county offices of education and community college districts statewide on the business, construction, energy, environmental and land-use aspects of school facilities planning, construction and management.

He lives in Davis with his wife and two daughters.

Blair Howard, a Woodland resident who teaches at King High School in Davis,  is a candidate for a two-year term in Trustee Area 3, representing the southern parts of Woodland and the northern parts of West Sacramento, as well as unincorporated areas of the county in between.

Howard is about to complete a one-year term as president of the Davis Teachers Association. He is seeking the seat recently held by Woodland resident Jesse Ortiz, who resigned as a trustee after being elected in June as Yolo County superintendent of schools. Ortiz will take over that position in January.

Carol Souza Cole, a Woodland resident who has served on the Woodland school board, is a candidate for Trustee Area 5, representing the northern portions of Woodland, and adjacent unincorporated areas of the county. Souza Cole is a grant writer by profession, and has been active with a number of Woodland groups and committees.

She is seeking the seat currently held by trustee Nancy Lea, who was first elected in 1993.

Thus far, no candidate has filed papers for Trustee Area 1, representing the southern portions of West Sacramento and adjacent unincorporated areas. The seat is held by incumbent Xavier Gamez, a resident of West Sacramento who works as assistant director of career services at Kaplan College.

The filing period closes Aug. 8, unless the incumbent does not seek re-election. In that case, the filing period is extended five days. Prospective candidates may pick up candidacy papers at the Yolo County Elections Office, 625 Court St., Room B05, in Woodland.
