Thanks to all of you who voted in the Board of Education races. Because of your interest and support we had some success and are well positioned for the races in the next election.
In the open District 2, Rebecca Smondrowski, our favored candidate, won with 51% of the vote in a close race and will serve on the Board of Education for 4 years. In our local precinct at River Falls Rebecca received 72.5% of the vote.
In District 4, Anita Seckinger did very well in her first race winning 41% of the vote countywide against incumbent Chris Barclay. In our local precinct Anita received almost 70% of the vote.
Incumbent Phil Kauffman, who voted against the Brickyard lease easily won the At Large seat against Morris Panner.
In the next election cycle we will have 4 Board of Education members up for election all who voted in favor of the Brickyard lease.
