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 4, 2008 ballot. The terms of office for Board Member Virginia de la Piedra and Board Member John Garnica will end December 1, 2008. The new terms of office will run until December 2012. 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 14, 2008 and must deliver the completed materials to the Ventura County Elections Office by 4:00 p.m. on normal business days, no later than Friday August 8, 2008.

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 or Susan Leon will be available to provide you with the filing materials and instructions.
