All-white Weast ticket is thing of past

The Board of Education is starting to look more like Montgomery County now. The pro-Weast ticket on the school board was all-white. Now that reformers are in control, the board is reflecting the county's diversity.

Over the objections of Stephen "Strom" Abrams and Sharon Cox, the board appointed Christopher Barclay to replace outgoing Valerie Ervin, who was elected to the County Council. Newly elected Judy Docca is the other African-American on the board.
