Special election coverage

The Woodford Sun will continue our coverage of the Tuesday, June 26, special election (to decide the fate of a 5.5 cent per $100 property tax increase to pay for a new high school and other capital projects) on election night.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, and as soon as the results are official, we’ll post them on our Facebook page and website.

In next week’s Sun, we’ll have a precinct by precinct breakdown and reactions to the outcome by some of the key players in the school tax debate. After that, we’ll examine related issues, such as the cost of a new high school and the timetable for building it (whether or not the tax increase passes), campaign expenditures by both sides, what’s next for the present high school, and more.

We appreciate the input from education and government officials, citizens, and all the people who wrote letters to the editor. This issue is one of the most important the people of Woodford County have faced in years, and the readers of the Sun have helped educate other community members about why they’re FOR or AGAINST the school tax.

Please check out our Facebook page or website Tuesday night.
