3 Raisin City school board members recalled in special election

Three out of four Raisin City Elementary School District board members facing recall, including the board president, were ousted in a special election Tuesday. In addition, a vacant seat was filled on the Golden Plains Unified School District board.

Raisin City trustee Evangelina Urias survived a recall attempt, with about 55 percent of those marking ballots voting “no.”

The recalled trustees are board president Anthony Monreal, Nancy Schwabenland and Federico Garcia.

Laday Ramirez was elected to replace Monreal, defeating Amber Flynn by a margin of 75 percent to 21 percent. Patricia Ramirez was elected to replace Schwabenland and Sofia Lopez will replace Garcia.

In the Golden Plains Unified School District, Leticia Rodriguez defeated Susana Prado to fill the vacant Area 3 seat.
