School Election/Budget Vote -- Results

I want to thank all who came out to vote yesterday in the school election.

We are happy to report that the Woodbury City Public School Budget for 2009-10 passed with 77.5% of those who voted giving the budget a favorable nod. This represents the sixth consecutive time that Woodbury City residents have supported the schools in public votes associated with financial questions.

In addition, congratulations to the three individuals elected to three-year terms on the Board of Education – Frank Gwalthney , Anthony Chiesa and Eliza White.

I am pleased to also report that the new student representative to the Board of Education was selected in a vote during the school day yesterday by the student body (grades 9-11). Congratulations to Teddy Johnson. He will serve a one-year term.

All newly elected board members will be sworn in at the next Board of Education meeting, April 29, 2009.
