As I said, and as the board explained in the recommendation, there must be a "qualified" challenger with whom to replace the incumbent. In Vilaseca's race, we did not believe there was.
This was not consistent with the endorsement for Vilaseca where the editorial board was fine with an apology that seemed sincere. https://twitter.com/ChronFalkenberg/status/1449186120714043393 …pic.twitter.com/m2YdHIIkd9
@mercaderclaudia introduces herself to #Oxford_Urology with a fascinating overview of life @hospitalclinic #Barcelona
Some great lines:
"They call it residency cos you live at the hospital"
" @MariaJRibal is like my uro-mother"
"Toni Vilaseca is kind of my mentor in everything"! pic.twitter.com/M80kiTGWKQ

Yet y’all still endorsed Vilaseca who allegedly did the same thing. Lindner was a fellow for Latinos for Education, an astroturf group brought to us by TFAers. You know the people, that spend a hot minute in the classroom & now think they’re education experts. She’s NOT qualified
Interestingly the chronicle doesn’t take issue with Vilaseca taking thousands upon thousands from TFA’s lobbying arm LEE and from people who sit on the TFA board and voting to renew their record. She at the least should recuse herself but she never does. Unethical
Thank you for mobilizing resources for our students at Bonham ES

Trustees Sung, Cruz, Hernandez, and Vilaseca were also all teachers. Teaching experience isn't and shouldn't be a prerequisite for a seat on the school board. Teaching and governing are two different roles, which is why governance and administration are separate functions.
