Milpitas Unified Will Hold Special Election for Bobay’s Old Seat

The fate of a Milpitas Unified school board seat vacated in July by Daniel Bobay will be decided by voters in a special election next March.

The cost of the election comes in at $113,000, according to the Mercury News. The winner will have to run again in November of 2020.

As of Dec. 6, three candidates had filed to run, per to the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters: Chia Ling Kong, Minh Ngo, and Vance Vuong.

The decision to hold a special election followed an uproar over the appointment of Ngo to the seat in August. Residents demanded a special election be held and the appointment was overturned.
