Two seats up for grabs?

ivy-wu-mug.jpgWe know of at least one open seat on the Fremont school board this November, but might there be two?

Since my last posting, in which I mentioned that Trustee Peggy Herndon has decided not to seek a third term, school board President Ivy Wu has told me that she hasn’t made up her mind whether she’ll run again.

Wu, who is finishing her first term, was diagnosed with breast cancer last spring but is in remission. She’s due for another check-up in March. If the exam comes back favorably, Wu said, she’ll consider running again. But if the cancer returns, Wu said she may have to undergo chemotherapy, which means that her community activism may have to take a back seat for a while.
