MCUSD Elections…

The Board Votes Yes!

Finally, at the June 13, 2024, meeting of the Mariposa County Unified School District board, after months of presentations and reviews and public comment, the Board of Trustees voted to approve electing trustees on a district basis as opposed to county-wide.

The vote was 3 to 2. Voting yes were Board President Kiser and Board Members Morse and Collins. Voting no were Boar Members Hill and Harper. 

Mariposa County will now elect trustees in compliance with the guidelines and requirements of the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA). 

This was a major victory for democracy and for fair representation in Mariposa County.

Many thanks to Mariposa Democratic Club members Kim Monson, president, and Lisa Edelheit, and to Barbara Cone, for their persistent work and vocal support of this critically important issue.

The Mariposa Gazette reported on the long road getting to this vote in the June 20 edition of the paper. You can find that here.
