Longtime resident and lifelong educator Rachelle Marcus has officially become the first candidate to throw her hat in the ring for one of two upcoming seats on the Beverly Hills Board of Education.
“I’m running for a seat on the school board because I believe the schools are crucial to Beverly Hills’ reputation as a wonderful place to live. The schools are the common thread that runs through our City. They are at its very heart,” said Marcus, who has taught at Horace Mann, El Rodeo, Hawthorne and Beverly Hills High School.
Marcus’ campaign kick-off is scheduled to take place on Sunday, Aug. 26th from 10 a.m. to noon. The election is Nov. 6.
“I know that the changes needed (in the school district) will take hard work and I am confident that a new board with strong leadership can move the district forward in a positive direction,” she said. “I look forward to earning the support and respect of the voters in our community and am committed to being a school board member who will bring honesty and real transparency to the job.”
