Thomas endorses Blanford in Seattle School Board race

Olu Thomas, in third place in the three-way race for the District 5 seat on the Seattle School Board,  has endorsed the frontrunner, Stephan Blanford.

In a prepared release, Thomas said Blanford has the best potential to represent the interest of the students in District 5, which includes the Central Area, Capitol Hill and parts of downtown Seattle.

Blanford thanked Thomas, saying that Thomas based her campaign on the desire for an equitable outcome for all students, and he shared that view.

Blanford won about 79 percent of the votes in the primary election, which was limited to voters in District 5.  LaCrese Green, a private tutor, was second with about 12 percent, about 785 votes ahead of Thomas.

Blanford and Green advance to the general election in November, where voters citywide will choose the winner.
