Post-election News

From the SPS Schoolbeat newsletter:

The formal swearing-in ceremony for these Peter Maier, Sherry Carr, Steve Sundquist and Harium Martin-Morris is scheduled for Wednesday, November 28, 6-7 p.m. in the auditorium at the John Stanford Center. All are welcome. The first meeting of the newly elected Board is Wednesday, December 5. Carr, Maier, Martin- Morris and Sundquist will join Directors Michael DeBell (District 4); Mary Bass (District 5); and Cheryl Chow (District 7). Wednesday, November 14 will be the last meeting at which the current Board will preside. About 7:30 p.m., the Board will take a short break for refreshments and to allow outgoing Board members Dr. Brita Butler-Wall, Darlene Flynn, Sally Soriano and Irene Stewart to be honored for their dedicated service to the students of Seattle.

From the PI:
"House Joint Resolution 4204 has netted 690,580 votes statewide, or 49.9 percent, according to the Secretary of State's Office. There are an estimated 178,168 ballots left to count."

We can only hope those last ballots will be enough to send Simple Majority off the ballot and onto the Constitution.
