Incumbent cites experience with district, Benicia
Editor’s note: Three terms on the Benicia Unified School District’s Governing Board of Trustees come to a close this year. Four candidates — three incumbents and one challenger — are vying for the three seats. Incumbents Peter Morgan and Rosie Switzer were featured in the Oct. 12 Benicia Herald.
During this year’s televised candidates forum, Steve Messina called himself “a known commodity and praised the Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees for the direction it has taken since he was elected to the panel in 2009.
He is seeking re-election to the Board Nov. 4.
