PEA endorses two school board candidates for the general election

September 19, 2016

Remember to vote in the General Election to be held on November 8th, 2016


Members of the Polk Education Association, AFSCME #2227, PEA-Retired and others interviewed the qualifying candidates for school board. Each candidate was asked to submit a questionnaire and then scheduled for an interview.


The committee’s recommendations for endorsement follow:

District 1 William ‘Billy’ Townsend;

District 4 Rebecca "Becky" Troutman


The candidates were asked a series of questions concerning the school district, positions on school funding, collective bargaining, subcontracting, and more. The committee members then deliberated to determine whether they could make an endorsement of any of the candidates for each school board district.  Please strongly consider the recommendations of the committee.
