School directors have two candidates to chose from as they elect WSSDA’s next vice president. Keith Clark of Central Valley School District and Rick Jansons of Richland School District were both recommended by WSSDA’s Nominating Committee. No at-large candidates emerged. Now, the decision is in the hands of members as voting kicks off on March 21.
The vice president position came open due to the incumbent’s resignation. Alex Ybarra of the Quincy School District resigned from the board after he was appointed to serve in the state Legislature starting January of 2019.
Online voting will run from March 21 through April 4 at 4 p.m. If there is no runoff, election results will be announced on April 5, 2019. To view the complete timeline, please visit WSSDA’s special election page.
