The Hesperia Teachers' Association, the local representative of the teachers in Hesperia Unified School District, has announced that its political action committee will be conducting interviews of prospective candidates running for HUSD's School Board.

There will be two seats on the school board open and they will be a part of the November 4, 2008 election. HTA has endorsed and supported the last five elected school board members in Hesperia. Based on the interviews, the committee will make a recommendation to its representative council who will then decide whether or not to endorse the candidate(s).

Interested candidates should contact Tom Kerman, Chair of the Hesperia Teachers' Association Political Action Committee at 885-6493; interview dates have yet to be determined.

HTA is affiliated with the California Teachers Association and the National Education Association.
