Nine candidates vying for 3 seats in CO district's board. Teachers unions and reform groups expected to dump cash into race with hopes of influencing future policy. One common theme from most candidates is increased cooperation between board members. A recent spat—leading to string of 4-3 votes—has not been received well by public.
