COSTA MESA — The Newport-Mesa Federation of Teachers has endorsed 30-year incumbent Judy Franco and Councilwoman Katrina Foley for school board.
Members of the union are also campaigning on behalf of the two candidates in advance of Tuesday's election.
Franco is running against Loretta Zimmerman for Trustee Area 5. Michael Collier, an incumbent with four years on the board, is facing off against Foley for Trustee Area 2.
Kimberly Claytor, president of the union, said the 1,200-teacher federation decided to back Franco and Foley in about August, but recently had been getting the word out on the campaign trail.
