Gary Wallach is hoping the second time's the charm.
The former teacher filed today for one of three available seats on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school board. Wallach ran and lost to two incumbents in the 2007 elections.
Wallach's 2007 campaign blog still exists here. There's also a candidate survey he completed back then for the N&O here. There's some detailed information on there about his previous experience and positions. (Fun fact: He was Frank Porter Graham Elementary's school mascot - a lion - for two years.)
Wallach and newcomer Michelle Brownstein are the only two filers so far. Incumbent Greg McElveen did tell us that he planned to run for re-election, however.
Candidate filing began Monday and continues until July 17.
