Deer Park School District voters in November will choose between a long-time incumbent and a candidate aiming to “lessen the impact of the state’s radical social agenda” for the district’s at-large board seat.
Spokane School Board President Mike Wiser easily advanced to the November election in Tuesday’s primary and will face Realtor Ericka Lalka.
Five candidates are running for a seat on the Deer Park School Board, a sizable number for the growing district in northern Spokane County where seats sometimes struggle to receive multiple candidates.
