Cynthia Roenisch, Dan Oppenheim and Kevin Saavedra were elected to the Tamalpais Union High School District (TUHSD) Board of Trustees on Election Day, November 6. The board will be responsible for navigating the district’s current budget crisis, and as a result financial experience was a major focus of the candidates’ campaigns, as was Measure J, the parcel tax which also passed November 6.

Three board seats were left open after former members Laura Anderson, Chuck Ford and Michael Futterman announced they would not seek re-election after the end of their terms this year. Barbara McVeigh, the fourth candidate, received the least votes and was not elected.

Roenisch is a former attorney and high school teacher who served on the Kentfield district board for 13 years. Saavedra is an investment banker and was the treasurer for the Measure J campaign. Oppenheim is a housing economist. The three had shared goals and so campaigned as a slate, Saavedra told The Tam News in October, criticizing McVeigh, an environmentalist, filmmaker, and author, for her lack of focus on the district budget.
