1:35 a.m. If any benighted souls are still with me, thanks. In the final stretch I know I didn’t maintain the usual standard of being consistent with the number of significant figures in percentages, but I hope readers will excuse that. Also, thanks for the many supportive comments that you posted this evening. We’re really determined to keep pushing ahead with an ever-better Berkeleyside. Later today, we’ll try to see if there’s deeper meaning to any of these votes. Good night.
Berkeleyside recently sent all the candidates for the School Board a set of questions, partly based on the suggestions our readers provided. Six candidates are running for three positions on the board: Josh Daniels, Norma Harrison, Karen Hemphill, Julie Holcomb, Priscilla Myrick and Leah Wilson. All except for Harrison responded to our questions. (If we hear from Harrison we will, of course, publish her responses.)
Four Berkeley council seats and a variety of other Berkeley posts are being contested at the general election on Tuesday, November 2. Berkeleyside will have full coverage of all the races but, first, here is your quick summary guide to who is running for what.
