Robert L. Gin will be appointed to the Alhambra Unified School District Board of Education during a special City Council meeting on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.

Gin was running as an incumbent for the school board’s 4th district and has served since as a member since 2002. Because he’s running unopposed, Gin and the school district requested that the city cancel the 4th district election and appoint him to school board for his next term, according to city documents.

“It’s kind of nice that I don’t have to run a for a 5th term,” Gin said. “Constituents think I’m doing a good job.”

Gin said that he was still open to participating in the Vote at 16 candidate forum and had already been contacted about an event date.

Gin added that he was eager to continue serving the district’s service, mainly by overseeing school facility upgrades that are being financed by a bond passed in 1998, as well as in 2016. Upgrades include adding technology to various schools, renovating playgrounds and auditoriums, adding shade structures to school campuses, as well as air conditioning to auditoriums and cafeterias.

He also cited the addition of PA systems as a priority, which students behind the Vote at 16 – SGV campaign also mentioned.

Gin also wants to bring an ethnic studies class to Alhambra’s high schools, focusing on the different groups that have built the United States.
