Tomorrow, voters will be asked to choose between two candidates in a runoff for a seat on the Los Angeles Unified School District board representing the east San Fernando Valley.

Monica Ratliff’s and Antonio Sanchez’s stances on the issues seem similar on many issues, though Sanchez, a rising star in Los Angeles’ political scene, has quite a bit of big-money backers and a political-action committee headed by Mayor Villaraigosa. Ahead of tomorrow’s run-off, the candidates will discuss everything from disruptive students in classrooms to school-served breakfasts.
