Power of Ten Update
Special Edition: Ballot Bewilderment
Ballots have begun to arrive in people’s mailboxes. They include the candidates for school board, even though the court has enjoined (prohibited) the district from holding another at-large (discriminatory) election. This is because, according to the district clerk, the ballots were already printed. The clerk says you should “not vote for the school board candidates”. However, she does not say that it will affect anything else if you do.
The school budget and library trustee vote are STILL HAPPENING.
If you got your ballot, you should fill it out and mail it back immediately. Please mark YES for the budget and for Library Trustee Alexandre.
Be aware that ballots can only be returned by mail, and that ballots received back at the district after the June 9 deadline will not be counted.
If you have not received a ballot, you may want to contact the district for further instructions. The contact information is on the district website.
