Brenes Concedes Defeat in Tightly Contested LAUSD Board Race

More than two weeks after the election, Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education candidate Maria Brenes conceded defeat Wednesday in her tightly contested race for the District 2 seat being vacated by Mónica García.

Brenes’ opponent, Rocío Rivas, declared victory late last week as her lead expanded. The latest returns show Rivas with 52.5% of the vote and a roughly 5,000-vote lead.

“There is much work to be done, and I am ready to bring my very best to all constituents — teachers, students, parents, neighbors,” Rivas said in a statement last week. “You can count on me to serve our district with unwavering dedication. Every day I will strive to nurture, sustain and protect our local, community public schools and the future of public education in Los Angeles.”
