Listen to L.A. Unified school board candidates
The big-money players in the March 8 Los Angeles Unified school board elections are Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the United Teachers Los Angeles union.
Their independent campaign fundraising and spending will dominate the messages voters hear about the candidates running for four seats on the seven-member Board of Education.
But voters may listen to the candidates themselves in just-posted interviews on The Times election page. All but one responded to questions posed by The Times. Those backed by neither the union nor Villaraigosa also were asked to participate.
The Times election page links to interviews with candidates in other races and to election-related news stories and blog items, as well as endorsements from The Times' editorial board.
