Prop SG Passes; Ballew, Gettinger Make Board
Jamie Naeger Ballew and Joshua Gettinger won out in a field of six candidates for two Ste. Genevieve R-II Board of Education positions tonight.
Meanwhile, the $20 million Prop SG passed overwhelmingly.
Ballew received 1,300 votes, or 28.1% , while Gettinger got 1,069 votes (23.1%), to earn positions, replacing the outgoing Terry McDaniel and Richard Rudloff.
Finishing just out of the money were Larry Pfaff Jr., with 914 votes (19.7%) and Brad Arnold, with 869 votes (18.8%).
Self-advertised Conservative candidates Mike Stoll and Sam Barbagallo got 261 and 214 votes respectively, good for 5.6 and 4.6%.
Prop SG, a no-tax increase bond issue, which will fund a new Early Learning Center and help the district upgrade security, heating and cooling and accessibility, passed with 1,724 in favor and 721 against, a 70.5% to 29.5% mark.
