The candidate filing period to run for one of the two open seats on the Santa Barbara Unified School Board closed on August 10, drawing eight candidates: Ismael Paredes Ulloa, Rose Muñoz, Jim Gribble, Ricardo Sisto Cota, Mark Alvarado, Kate Ford, Bonnie Raisin, and Joe Rivera. Sitting boardmember Kate Parker’s term expires in December 2018; she will not be running for reelection. The second available seat currently belongs to Ulloa, who was appointed in 2016 after Monique Limón was elected to the State Assembly.
