2017 School Board Election

GEA Members: I have been directed to share the results of the GEA Candidate Forum. Of those present, the top candidates were Rod Scherpe and Vickie Banks. Both received ratings higher than 85%.

Some have expressed concern about splitting the votes by voting for other candidates.  This could lead to a candidate less favorable being elected.  Additionally, some have expressed concern for voting for candidates and giving them a false sense of an approved mandate when they are actually uncontested.

Make a difference.  With an expected moderate turnout EVERY vote will be needed.  Vote!!

2016 Election

Hi

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.
