Nice Results in Yesterday’s School Board Election

by jhwygirl

Michael Moore, of the Missoulian, has a nice roundup.

Both nominal levies passed, providing supplemental amounts of maintenance funds for the elementary and the high school districts. I’m sure the board and administration are both breathing a sigh of relief on that.

Both Nancy Pickardt and Joseph Knapp succeeded over Chris Jones, nutcase from the Coalition for Community Responsibility for (not one, but) two empty seats on the K-12 trustee block, while Marcia Holland routed incumbent Rick Johns nearly 2:1.

Jones garnered only 15% of the vote in his three-way race, while Holland took Johns 623-366.

Take That, Regressives!
