APS School Board Elections

Weekly Alibi Endorsements

The Albuquerque Public Schools will have an election on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017 to elect members to the Board of Education in school board districts 3, 5, 6 and 7. Though many qualified individuals are running, voters should be aware that members of the Tea Party and affiliated far-right political movements are fielding candidates in this election.

Citizens can halt the incursion of such reactionary candidates by voting for progressive, education- and equality-minded candidates. Here are our endorsements:

• District 3: Lorenzo L. Garcia (Incumbent)

• District 5: Candelaria “Candy” Patterson

• District 6: Elizabeth Armijo

• District 7: Dr. David Eugene Peercy (incumbent)
