Reality TV Star OMAROSA Bids For School Board Seat

By  |  0 Comments

More than a dozen candidates, including my friend, Omarosa, filed papers for an open Los Angeles Unified School District seat by Tuesday’s deadline.

Omarosa Manigault, who appeared on the first season of Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice,” was one of 13 candidates who filed papers for District 1, which encompasses South L.A. and portions of West L.A.

Tuesday marked the deadline to enter the June 3 race. The election was called after school board member Marguerite LaMotte passed away in December.

Manigault’s bid for the seat comes as the school board faces mounting criticism over infighting and dysfunction. In the last year, board members have clashed over the district’s costly iPad program, harassment accusations leveled at Board President Richard Vladovic and the near resignation of Superintendent John Deasy.

Manigault, the author of the book “The Bitch Switch: Knowing How to Turn It On and Off” and an assistant pastor in Boyle Heights, said in an email that she had been encouraged to run by her congregation. Omarosa is also inspired to continue being an advocate for education through the memory of her late finace, actor Michael Clarke Duncan.
