Steve Messina said he wants to continue what he, and the rest of the board, began by seeking re-election for a seat in the Benicia Unified School District Governing Board.
Messina, 64, isn’t a stranger to public positions, having served on the Benicia City Council for a decade, including eight years as mayor from 1999 to 2007. He was elected into the board in 2009.
“There are some things I would like to help,” he said.
One of the most important things, he said, is the allocation of the $ 49.6 million general bond, which was passed in June by voters and is to be used for renovations and repairs on facilities in the district.
