The state's teachers union has quashed an effort to rerun the Fresno Teachers Association election that swept in a slate of new officers in April.
The election of Fresno High math teacher Tish Rice and her slate will stand, the California Teachers Association ruled, setting aside allegations that candidates misused FTA resources during the campaign.
Rice, 46, will replace Eva Ruiz and Cooper Academy teacher Adam Ebrahim will be vice president. Rice and Ebrahim, plus two other candidates who ran under the slogan "a united voice for teachers," took office July 1.
