Bennett Kayser was sworn in this morning as a member of the Los Angeles school board, replacing Yolie Flores as the District 5 representative. Kayser, a retired middle school teacher, defeated Luis Sanchez of El Sereno in a school board race dominated by large amounts of campaign contributions from the teachers’ union (which supported Kayser) and allies of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who backed Sanchez. Kayser represents a district that includes Silver Lake and Los Feliz as well as El Sereno and East Los Angeles. Kayser’s oath of office was administered by former school board and city council member Jackie Goldberg (an Echo Park resident) and David Tokofsky, also a former school board member who resides in Eagle Rock, and Jeffrey Penso.
