The election is over and Jessica Hembree, a Trailwood parent, will be our new Shawnee Mission South area representative on the Board of Education starting in January. Remember that every year is an election year, so we will vote again next year for Kansas House, Kansas Senate, US Congress, US Senate, President and other offices. We anticipate that every district will have a competitive election next year.
