This school board election is one of the most important votes you will ever cast and will determine the curriculum and values taught to our students for years to come.
There is literally NO EXCUSE not to vote. You can vote any weekday between now and the official “election day” of November 2 by going to the school district offices (doesn’t matter what precinct you’re in) at 5902 Sunnyfield Rd. E, Minnetrista. Bring an ID with you because technically this is absentee voting, but it’s “no excuse absentee voting”. Between Oct. 26 and election day the process is a bit more simple and voters can feed their ballot directly into the voting machine intead of putting it in a sealed envelope to be processed by the absentee ballot board.
Challengers to the school board incumbents are:

The above challengers are focused on education, not politics, and making sure our students get the skills they need to become productive adults in our communities. In my opinion any of them would be preferrable to the incumbents below. GET OUT AND VOTE!

One thought on “Vote NOW for Westonka school board!”
“This school board election is one of the most important votes you will ever cast and will determine the curriculum and values taught to our students for years to come.”
This is why you should vote to re-elect the three incumbents on the ballot. Together, they have helped shape the Westonka School District into the #9 district in the state, while keeping per-capita expenditures the lowest in the west metro. They helped make the school district so attractive that all four challengers give the Westonka schools as one of their primary reasons for locating in the area (but now they feel change is needed).
Stick with the proven leaders who got us here. As I’ve seen said recently, change is good when change is needed, but replacing any of these three incumbents is not a change we need right now.
Even if you don’t have a student in the district, this election affects you and your neighbors. Get informed, and VOTE!
