School board races rev up by

OAKLAND -- More residents are interested in managing the Oakland Unified School District by running for election to its board of directors in November, with the number of candidates running in Districts 2, 4 and 6 way up from the last election in 2010.

Eight candidates are running for the three seats compared to the last time around when both David Kakishiba and Christopher Dobbins ran unopposed in District 2 and District 6. Both are stepping down and there are two candidates running for each of their seats.

And there are four candidates running for the District 4 seat this year to replace Annie Campbell Washington, up from two in 2010.
