2016 Election


As you may know, the Galesburg Education Association along with the Illinois Education Association has voted to give our support to Bill Butts for the upcoming election on Nov. 8th. Pam Davidson, the Knox County Democratic Chair has contacted us to ask for our help. They need volunteers for Sat. and Sun. from 9:30 to approximately 3:00. If you could help for even two hours it would be greatly appreciated. Lunch will be provided at around 12:00. They are expecting Cheri Bustos, Bill Butts and possibly other representative to be there. It is my understanding that the GEA family and friends are needed to help canvass the Knoxville area. Volunteers will have a quick training around 9:30. It will be a set of simple instructions. Volunteers will be allowed to work in groups or alone. The address for us to meet is 323 E Main St. in Galesburg. This is the Knox County Democrats Headquarters. I know this is a short notice but it is our opportunity to help elect someone that is a strong supporter for the GEA. Bill Butts stood behind us during the strike.  Mr. Butts is a strong supporter of unions. If you can please help, all you have to do is show up at the headquarters around 9:30. You can call me if you have questions. I plan on being there by 9:30 tomorrow morning. I hope to have several of you there with me to show that the G.E.A. stands behind those that stand up for us.

District #205 Board Elections

On Wednesday, March 18, the candidates running for District #205 were notified of the outcome of the information gathered at the GEA forum.  Using that information, and with guidance from building AR’s at the March GEA meeting, the following information was shared with each candidate.

GEA would like to thank you for your willingness to serve on the District #205 School Board, as well as participating in the GEA School Board Forum.

Based on a favorable score of 80% or higher from the membership that attended the forum on March 10, the GEA has approved the support of three candidates for the District #205 School Board.  While it was clear that all the candidates were qualified for the seats currently open, the system that was in place to use in this decision was based on input from those present. The representatives that discussed the issue of supporting candidates struggled with this decision, and felt this method was fair to all candidates. Candidates are arranged in order in which they appear on the ballot.

In township:

Tianna Cervantez and

H. Wayne Statham

All other townships:

Jean Ann Glasnovich (write in)

Mrs. Pickrel could not be recommended using the forum scoring due to her prior commitment to work at the Steele Musical.  While she did attend, she was only able to answer two questions which skewed her scoring.
