Special Election Set for September 9
August 19, 2014Mt Pleasant High School
The Henry County Auditors Office has announced that three candidates will be on the ballot for the District III seat on the Mt. Pleasant School Board.
The names of Jennifer Crull, Stephanie Zinkle and Karl Braun will appear on the ballot for the 2014 Special School Election on September 9th. This will be to fill a vacancy created when Melody Yaley resigned from the school board. Originally, Zinkle had been appointed to finish the term, set to expire in September of 2015. Yaley’s seat has to go on the ballot due to the fact that the school board decided to hold a bond issue vote, creating a special election this September.
The bond referendum that will also appear on the ballot is for 16.9 million dollars to make much needed improvements to the district’s four elementary school buildings and for new technology.
Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm at the Cottrell Gym Wrestling Room, 400 East Madison, and the Salem Community Building in Salem.
