Almonte was elected to the Area 1 seat of the San Leandro School Board in 2008, defeating incumbent Rick Richards. Earlier in 2008, Almonte had an unsuccessful run for the District 6 City Council seat, in a race that included Jim Prola and three other candidates. Prola received nearly 58% of the vote, avoiding a run-off election.
Prola pulled papers to run for re-election on July 16, 2012. The deadline for filing is August 10, 2012, and will not be extended since Prola, the incumbent, is running.
The election will be held on November 6, 2012. The City Council seats for Districts 2, 4, and 6 are up for election. The last day to register to vote is October 22, 2012.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at August 4, 2012 1:41 PM | TrackBack
