Petition on Winchester School Board Referendum Filed
The petition drive was started on April 5, 2019 by Roya Milotte, who said she was first motivated to file the petition last year, when City Council failed to appoint anyone to the city’s ward three School Board position. She said she was further pushed to file by the recent denial of Title IX cases submitted by a student identified as Francesca, and that she wanted to make the board more accountable for its actions.
1,700 signatures are required before citizens can be asked on the November 5 ballot whether they believe members of the School Board should continue to be appointed by City Council, or whether their seats should be subject to election. Clerk of Court Terry Whittle said Tuesday (7/16/2019) that his office received over 200 pages of signatures, which were sent that day to the Office of Elections and Voter Registration. It’s unknown how long it will take for the signatures to be fully counted and confirmed.
