Precincts ready for school election

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Most precincts in Garvin County will be open for business the customary hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. as school elections take center stage on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

A total of 12 precincts are open as school board races will be decided, including those in Pauls Valley and nearby Maysville.

In PV the race includes a trio of candidates — incumbent Joe Don Looney and challengers Brandi Harris and Randy McGee.

In Maysville there are two board races on the ballot.

For the No. 4 office on Maysville’s school board Vickie Foraker and Cindy Wilmot are running for a five-year term.

Tyler Dean and Heidi Gamble are the candidates for the unexpired term of Maysville’s No. 2 office.

Precincts set to be open for Tuesday election are:

• Bill Mitchell Complex in Lindsay, 308 SW 2nd.

• Rec multi-purpose center in Lindsay, 808 N. Industrial Heights.

• Erin Springs Baptist Church south of Lindsay.

• Maysville Methodist Church, 705 Mays.

• PV National Bank, Meridian branch, Indian Meridian and SH 19.

• AFLAC building in PV, Airline Road.

• Elmore City Community Building, 104 S. Main.

• Hennepin Community Building, SH 7.

• Donihoo-Colley Complex in PV, 300 Melville.

• Trucks Unlimited, I-35 and SH 29.

• PV Methodist Church, Willow and Rennie.

• Bosa Center in PV.

All other races impacting precincts are outside of Garvin County.

In Alex a school board race involves Jill Hurley and Nicole Anderson Bauman.

Voters in the Bray-Doyle district have Brian Lee Bearce and Clayton Kilbourn on the ballot.

The Southern Oklahoma Tech Center has Richard Chadwick and Robin England Plumb running for a school office.

Another big election comes on March 4 when all voters in Garvin County get the chance to express their opinion on a countywide half-cent sales tax up for renewal.

The tax in place since 2007 is again up for a seven-year term with revenue earmarked this time for the county sheriff’s department, county commissioners for roads and the county’s 911 dispatch center. A portion would go into the county’s general fund.

Also on March 4 is an election for Pauls Valley voters to consider a half-cent sales tax with revenues going to make needed capital improvements at PV General Hospital.

Specifically, those improvements are to focus on updating the hospital’s diagnostic equipment.

Yet another election is set for April 1 as a $20.3 million school bond issue in Wynnewood is on the ballot.

The Wynnewood issue, if passed by at least 60 percent, will go to build a new elementary school.
