Voters say no on EC school issue

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Voters in the Elmore City area said no in a big way Tuesday to a school bond issue, while in Lindsay a new city council member was seated.

With school issues needing at least 60 percent to pass, voters in the EC-Pernell school district turned down this school proposal by a large margin.

A total of 340 voters opposed the school issue, while only 207 ballots came in support of the measure.

That adds up to 62.2 percent of the ballots in opposition and just under 38 percent in support.

The $7.51 million issue spread out over a series had proposed the construction of a new gymnasium and conversion of ECP High School into a building with separated areas for middle school and high school students.

In Lindsay it was Scott McPherson who earned a seat on the Lindsay City Council.

During Tuesday’s election voters in Lindsay gave McPherson an easy win over Ronny Harrell.

McPherson finished with a 60-31 edge in votes, which resulted in him garnering nearly 66 percent of the support.

Other elections on the horizon are for three council seats in Maysville on Oct. 8.

One race looks to be between Richard Duane Robinson and Debra Degering to fill one town council office with two more years left in its full term.

Two other seats with unexpired terms look to be filled by the top vote-getters out of the three candidates filing to seek the offices.

The trio of candidates include Michael Park, David Uhles and Bryson S. Tate.

Voters in Pauls Valley are also expected to again face a city issue, this time in November, that calls for a half cent sales tax measure to support the operation of PV General Hospital.

The measure was originally set for the Sept. 10 ballot but later rescinded.

The new election date for the vote is expected to be Nov. 12.
