A botched teachers' union election last month has pitted former rivals for the presidency of the union against each other once again.
In September, the New Haven Teachers Association (NHTA), the local branch of the California Teachers Association, which represents Logan's teachers, held an election to choose a representative to the state council of the CTA. The current NHTA president, Charmaine Kawaguchi, a Logan computer science teacher, won the state council seat against Teri Hawkins, an Alvarado Middle School teacher who ran against Kawaguchi for the presidency of the local in 2006.
The state council representative election did not go smoothly.
