SAN LORENZO -- A San Lorenzo school board candidates forum is planned for Oct. 1.

Three incumbents are up for re-election. Retired educator Norman Fobert is seeking his fifth term. Helen Foster, manager of human resources for an area school district, is running for a third term. Jim Sherman, a retired school district custodian, is seeking re-election to a second term.

They face two challengers: Penny Peck, a retired children's librarian, and Syed "Tony" Shah, director of human resources for Castro Valley schools.

The forum, sponsored by the League of Women Voters Eden Area, is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the San Lorenzo Village Homes Association hall, 377 Paseo Grande.
