Scott Bowen Wins – May
Greetings! We have new representation on the CCISD Board! On Saturday, May 4th Scott Bowen beat 4-time incumbent Ann Hammond for At-Large Position B. Thanks to all of you who voted, phone banked and participated in the campaign especially BARW Historian and Bowen Campaign Treasurer, Karen Plante, and BARW Campaign Activities Chair Debbie Roan and her husband Bernie Roan! Big thanks go to my husband, Peter Lauzon for getting Scott name recognition with the huge 4’x8′ signs posted at polling locations and high traffic areas in the community. Did you see them?!
Your efforts brought new voters into this election. Specifically, 70% of the votes cast were from voters that had not participated in prior CCISD elections. Notice, I said “for this election”. Regrettably, voter turn-out is extremely low for one of the highest taxing authorities – our school district. I call you to become more active in the campaign season ahead. Great things can be achieved when we put our words to action!
