Bentley on track to be unseated from HUSD board

Rogers, Gregg take early leads

HESPERIA • A former teacher and a student took early leads in the race for the Hesperia Unified School District board, as incumbent board president Christopher Bentley lagged among four candidates, according to preliminary results late Tuesday night.

Ella M. “Lee” Rogers and Cody Gregg, 21, were on pace to be at the helm of the school district after the two took over a combined 60 percent of the vote.

“I’m glad the voters looked beyond my youth,” Gregg said.

Rogers, a retired teacher in the Victor Valley Union High School District, received 3,714 votes, with Gregg, a former member of the California National Guard, coming in second with 2,870 votes.

“I believe our board will now be able to bring civility back to the school district,” Gregg said. “Bringing in transparency across the board, focusing on campus safety and involving parents is going to be a big part of our future.”

Here’s how all of the candidates stacked up:

• Bentley, incumbent — 18.81 percent

• Gregg, business owner — 26.11 percent

• Marcy Kittinger, former retail director — 20.75 percent

• Rogers, retired educator — 34.33 percent
