Candidates Sought for School Board Vacancies
Fillmore Unified School District
Fillmore Unified School District

Two positions on the Fillmore Unified School District Board of Education will be on the November 6, 2012 ballot. The terms of office for Board Members Virginia de la Piedra and John Garnica will end December 2012. The new terms of office will run until December 2016. The current Board Members have the option of running again.

Candidates interested in running for the School Board should pick up filing materials from the County Clerk Elections Division or the Fillmore Unified School Districts Office beginning July 16, 2012 and must deliver the completed materials to the Ventura County Elections Office no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 10, 2012.

If a candidate wishes to publish a statement in the sample ballot pamphlet, it will be the candidate’s responsibility to pay for the statement fee. However, once a candidate has properly filed a Declaration of Candidacy with Ventura County Elections Office and qualifies for the election, the Fillmore Unified School District will provide space in a local newspaper for candidates to publish a statement at no charge to the candidates. Statements published in the local newspaper will have to comply with the same rules that would apply had the candidate filed a statement with Ventura County Elections.

Questions may be addressed to the County Elections Division at 654-2664 or the District Superintendent’s Office at 524-6038. Anyone wishing to pick up materials from the School District Office at 627 Sespe Avenue should call first to be sure that either Cynthia Padilla (524-6038) or Susan Leon (524-6034) will be available to provide the filing materials and instructions.
