Cameron wins Twin Rivers board seat in low-turnout race
by Diana Lambert
Charter school executive Sonja Cameron defeated civil rights activist Basim Elkarra to win a seat on the Twin Rivers Unified School District board, the Sacramento County elections department announced Monday.
Cameron had 52 percent of the vote, compared with Elkarra's 47 percent, in a race that drew only 2,100 ballots from a pool of 11,228 registered voters in last Tuesday's election. Less than 1 percent of ballots contained write-in candidates.
"They don't have to make a new name tag for the podium," said Cameron, who will represent North Natomas and Robla after briefly serving as an appointee in December and January before petitioners forced the Area 5 special election.
