School administrators appointed to new posts
Lodi Unified School District trustees recently appointed several new administrators.
Linda Kapic, a vice principal at Creekside Elementary School, was appointed as principal at Julia Morgan Elementary School, which is scheduled to open next school year.
Tami Somera, who currently serves as vice principal at Nichols Elementary School, will take over as vice principal of the district's adult education program.
Wendy Boszak was appointed as vice principal at Morada Middle School. She has worked as a teacher and administrators in a Reno school district.
Maria Fong was appointed as the district's controller. She previously worked in the finance and accounting department of the California Department of Education.
The appointments were approved at last week's meeting.
Business PAC endorses candidate
Business United for Good Government, a political action committee of the Galt District Chamber of Commerce, has endorsed Darryl Clare for the vacant City Council seat.
Clare, who lost a seat on the council last year by only six votes, is running for the third time. Other candidates are Steve Denton, David Gibbons, Lori Heuer and Teresa Pearson.
The winner of the March election faces re-election in November.
The PAC endorsed Clare because of his understanding of regional planning and because he has the best experience among the candidates for an eight-month seat, said Rex Albright, the chamber's executive director.
The PAC, an independent expenditure corporation, consists of a five-member advisory committee chaired by John White.
Steve Holman will take over chairmanship after he steps down as chamber president in January.
The PAC will also endorse candidates in state and federal races beginning with the November election, Albright said.
