FORMER Garden Grove City Council member Dina Nguyen has taken out nomination papers to run for the Garden Grove school board.

A familiar name has popped up in a new place in the paperwork for the Nov. 8 general election. Dina Nguyen, who served two terms on the Garden Grove City Council, has taken out papers to run for a seat on the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education, according to the Orange County Registrar of Voters.

She would be facing Linda Paulson-Reed, a long-time incumbent, for the Trustee Area Seat 5, which is in the southwest of the district. The 2016 election will be the first in which GGUSD board members are elected by geographical district, rather than at-large.

As of Monday morning, here are candidates who have taken out nomination papers to run for local school board seats. The deadline to return completed paperwork is Friday, Aug. 12.
