Did you know that every year is an election year? In odd-numbered years we always have local government officials to elect, including members of our Shawnee Mission Board of Education.
This year, most Trailwood families will vote for two positions. All Shawnee Mission families will vote for the at-large position currently held by Brad Stratton, who is running unopposed. Those families living in the South Area will vote for a new member to replace outgoing member Deb Zila, who is retiring. There are two candidates running, both parents of students in the district: Brian Brown and Jessica Hembree.
Candidate forums featuring both candidates are scheduled to occur on:
PTA does not endorse candidates but encourages everyone to register to vote by Oct. 15 and to vote with PTA priorities in mind on Nov. 5.
