Folsom Cordova school board President Teresa Stanley announced her candidacy Tuesday for the District 4 seat held by Sacramento County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan.
Stanley, 55, a registered Republican, has served 19 years on the school board. She faces opposition from Folsom City Councilwoman Kerri Howell, 57, a Democrat who announced her candidacy a week ago, and Citrus Heights Mayor Sue Frost, 59, a Republican who last month was the first to announce that she would run for the county post.
MacGlashan, a Republican, said in September she would not seek re-election in 2016 and plans to step down next year after 12 years in office.
The district includes eastern and northern Sacramento County suburbs such as Rio Linda, Antelope, Citrus Heights, Orangevale and Folsom. MacGlashan said she has accomplished most of her goals during her time in office.
Stanley’s endorsements include Folsom City Councilman Ernie Sheldon and Rancho Cordova Mayor Bob McGarvey, according to her announcement.
Howell has received endorsements from fellow Folsom council members Jeff Starsky, Andy Morin and Steve Miklos. Frost has been endorsed by Carl Burton, president of the Republicans of River City, and the Sacramento Association of Realtors.
