Special elections are held in the unlikely event that an officer of the WSSDA board resigns or is removed from their position. If WSSDA holds a special election, this is the place to look for information.
Vice President Alex Ybarra has resigned his position
A special election will be held to fill the newly vacated vice president position on WSSDA’s board of directors. Alex Ybarra from the Quincy School District resigned from his position as vice president of the WSSDA board because he was appointed to serve in the state Legislature starting January of 2019.
