MINNEAPOLIS — Four of the seven candidates for local school boards who were endorsed by the Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation, AFL-CIO have won their races.

The MRLF’s two endorsed candidates for Minneapolis School Board, however, both appear to have lost their elections.

For the District 2 seat representing north Minneapolis, the MRLF endorsed one-term incumbent KerryJo Felder for re-election. Felder also was endorsed by the Minneapolis DFL.

Sharon El-Amin, who ran for an At Large seat on the school board two years ago, defeated Felder by a vote of 13,576 to 11,010.

Felder is a member of Teamsters Local 120 and works as a community organizer for the MRLF.

In the race for Minneapolis School Board District 4, MRLF and DFL-endorsed Christa Mims ran a close second behind Adriana Cerrillo, who led 15,928-15,622, a difference of just 306 votes. (No word as the Labor Review went to press about a possible recount).

Mims is a Hennepin County social worker and member of AFSCME Local 34.

In the Osseo school district, three of the MRLF’s four endorsed candidates won election to At Large seats. They included: Thomas Brooks, who led a field of five candidates running in a special election; plus, in the regular election, Tamara Grady and incumbent Jackie Mosqueda-Jones. Grady placed first in the field of 11 candidates, with the top three to be elected. Mosqueda-Jones placed third. Miamon Queeglay placed fourth and was not elected.

In the Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose school district, MRLF-endorsed Amanda Lawrence won an At Large school board seat.
