The West Hollywood Beverly Hills Democratic Club has announced that it is endorsing Rachelle Marcus and Farrah Dodes for the Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) Board of Education. The endorsement comes with exactly two months to go before the Nov. 8 election. 

The West Hollywood Beverly Hills Democratic Club is composed of the West Hollywood Democratic Club, founded in 1985, and the Beverly Hills Democrats, founded in 2005. The two separate groups joined forces in 2009 and are now officially chartered by the L.A. County Democratic Party and the California Democratic Party.Dodes and Marcus are two of five total candidates running to fill the seats of Marcus and Gabriel Halimi, which expire in December. The remaining three candidates are Judy Manouchehri, Michal Amir-Salkin, and Janessa LaVoice. Both of the candidates endorsed by the Democratic Club have been active members of the Beverly Hills educational community. 

Marcus has provided over 50 years of service to the BHUSD, teaching at all five schools, in addition to currently serving as a board member. She is the only incumbent candidate. “I’m very pleased,” Marcus told the Courier, referring to the endorsement. “The campaign I’m running is based on my experience, my institutional knowledge and my dedication. I’ve given it all I could give.”

Dodes is currently the President of the Beverly Hills Education Foundation, has served on several school district advisory committees and is on the Beverly Vista Middle School Site Council. 

“I am honored to have received the confidence of the club’s membership,” said Dodes in a statement.
