Claremont resident Sam Mowbray, a former

Claremont Unified School District board member

who served from 1990-2006, is the latest

possible candidate to pull papers for the upcoming

board election this fall.

bring renovation and repairs to district schools.

Both board members began their first terms in



The filing period will be open through August
