Vacaville – In just over two months, residents of Vacaville will be asked to go to the polls and elect four trustees to the Vacaville Unified School District Board of Education.
If you haven’t kept up with who is running and what the issues are, Michele “Shelley” Dally, David McCallum, Horace “Whit” Whitman, Jeremy Jeffreys, Judith D. Ruggiero, Tracee Stacy, Deloris Roach, Christopher Flask and Shawn Windham are all expected to attend the candidate forum on August 19th, and make their argument as to why he or she is the best person to join the seven seat board.
Given that a majority of the board is up for grabs, the four people who are elected will have a major influence on the future of the Vacaville Unified School District, which serves just over 12,000 students and employs almost 1,000.
“Four out of seven is a majority,” said Moira McSweeney, Vacaville Teachers Association President. “These people can have a very large effect on the future of our schools and the future of our schools affects everyone in Vacaville.”
The forum will be on August 19th, in the Wildcat Theater at Will C Wood High School, which is located at 998 Marshall Rd.
It will be a two-hour forum starting at 6:00 pm and is sponsored by the Vacaville Teachers Association.
The election will be Tuesday, November 4th.
