image for Voters Elect Size 10 Shoe to Local School Board

(Los Angeles) - In a local election held last week to fill a vacancy on the Los Angeles school board, a size 10 shoe received the most votes and today was declared the winner of the election.

The politically moderate shoe received more than 14,000 write-in votes and soundly defeated the ultra-liberal candidate, Lotta Spending.

The shoe apparently echoed voter's frustration with the poor California school system, with the campaign slogan, "Education in Los Angeles is a tax-and-spend disaster. It's time to put our foot down".

The slogan of Miss Spending was, "Forget results, we're just going to spend more money".

When asked about running for a higher office in the future the victorious shoe replied, "I don't make long range plans. I'm a shoe; I take it one step at a time".
