Two seek School Board chair prize? 

The election-day upset of Richmond School Board Vice Chairwoman Lisa Dawson has opened a power vacuum on the board. Two members -- one a veteran member and the other a new face -- are vying to fill that vacuum, according to School Board sources.

First district Board member Kimberly M. Bridges and the incoming 3rd Distrcit representative Norma Murdoch-Kitt both have begun campaigns to assume the chairman post, which is now up in the air after the departure of Dawson.

With four new members on the board, and the two most obvious coalitions on the board possibly neutralized after each losing members, who might take the spot may well be a real question.
