Just_a_Mom 1 year ago on Voters defeat both Jefferson City school issues

The voters got to vote for 2 school board members. If you divide the 19272 by 2, you get 9636 which is less than the number of folks that cast votes on the 2 questions. The reason it is less might be due to the fact that some only voted for one board member. You can do that and it's still valid.

How is a 6-0 vote unanimous when we have a 7 member board? Where was Ms. Peoples and what would have been her vote?

Allow us to vote on a two high school model. Let the voter decide what is cost prohibitive. Communities all over have multiple high schools, both public and private, and the business people determine how to distribute their advertising dollars. Continue to let them do their jobs. As far as the argument of creating a have and have-not situation (new facility vs. current JCHS), that happens all the time, too. In fact, didn't that happen in the JCPS district when Pioneer Trail was opened and won't it happen again when the new, proposed elementary is built?? There will be some that are attracted to the shiny new facility while others will prefer the tradition of the old. Put the two high school issue to rest by allowing the voter to do their job. If it passes, proceed down that route. If it doesn't, the current proposal is a great Plan B and you'll have my support.
