School Board Candidate D’Artagnan Scorza, Ph.D. was elected on April 7 to the Inglewood Unified School District Board of Education in seat #5. The Inglewood City Clerk has published unofficial election results showing Dr. Scorza received 60.5% of the vote while Incumbent Henry Brown received 39.5%, with 100% of the precincts reporting. While still unofficial, there were 4,612 total voters who participated in the election. The final results are expected to be certified at the next regular Inglewood City Council meeting on April 21, with the official swearing in to be scheduled at a later date. 

“I am so deeply humbled and grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support from each and every single person that sent me a note, made a contribution, showed up to phone bank, emailed a friend, knocked on doors, clicked the like button, called me with advice, shared your space, retweeted, reposted, talked to a neighbor and voted,” Scorza said.

“This win is a victory for all of us who believe that we can make a difference in our communities and that our voice matters! It’s an awesome responsibility and privilege to serve our communities whether you’re in the classroom as a teacher, leading girl scouts activities, mentoring young men, tutoring your niece or serving meals at the local senior center. It’s this spirit that binds us together and makes us stronger.

“I thank each of you for standing with me through this journey and also realize that the work ahead will be fraught with challenges and opportunities, both of which I’m looking forward to.

“I take this election as a signal to work collaboratively with my fellow board members, State Trustee Dr. Don Brann, City Officials, students, parents and teachers as well as key stakeholders to improve our schools so every child can get a great education.”
