Kelly Davis not running for re-election on WUSD Board (Updated)

In response to a question as to whether she had decided whether to run for re-election in April to the Whitewater Unified School Board, Kelly Davis provided this response, “I have been humbled to serve on the Whitewater Unified School District School Board for the past six years, but recently informed Dr Pate-Hefty, the entire School Board, District administrative leaders and past supporters that I will not be running again in April. I am, of course, happy to talk with anyone who may want to know more about running for and serving on the Board.” Ms. Davis currently serves as Vice President of the board.

The seat currently held by Tom Ganser will also be on the April 6, 2021 election. Mr. Ganser told the Banner that he plans to run for reelection.

(Banner comment: Updates made in this paragraph.) Board members are elected for three-year terms, and may be paid $15 per meeting, although many decline to accept the payment. In addition to regular meetings on the fourth Monday of each month, members are also appointed to serve on committees. In December’s meeting there is planned to be discussion about the “quantity of school board meetings,” an item that was deferred from the November agenda. Reportedly in the past the board sometimes met twice monthly.

Per Kelly’s invitation, residents of the school district who may be interested in running for the board could contact her at kellydavis@wwusd.org. Information may also be obtained from the School Board Secretary, Jaclyn Tueting, at jtueting@wwusd.org, 419 S. Elizabeth St., or 262-472-8702. The deadline for filing for candidacy with Ms. Tueting is 5:00 p.m. on January 5, 2021. Candidates are not required to submit nominating petitions. They do not run for a specific seat; in this case, the two candidates with the most votes will be elected.
