There are actually eight candidates fighting for three Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education seats this November.
Solano County Registrar of Voters officials confirmed Monday morning that Christy Gardner completed her candidacy paperwork before the Aug. 10 deadline.
A candidate list on the county’s website previously showed that Gardner had missed the deadline.
With Gardner’s addition, she joins a crowded field which includes all three board incumbents and four other challengers.
Board President Burky Worel, along with trustees Ruscal Cayangyang and Tony Ubalde, will attempt to keep their seats on the five-person board.
Both Worel and Ubalde were re-elected to the board in 2014.
