Election May 21st

Ballots have been mailed. May elections are usually low turnout since they are primarily local non-partisan elections and ballot measures. This gives an opportunity for a small percentage of voters to elect someone who may not have the best intentions for the community.


Most races are uncontested. Here are the contested races and others of interest.

Grants Pass School District #7
Brian DeLaGrange, Position #6 No comment. Read the voter pamphlet – what applicable experience do they have; what have they supported and opposed regarding school funding. For example,  DeLaGrange has opposed a middle school levy and Penning has not placed an alternative on the ballot.
Joshua Shannon, Position #6
Garry L Penning
Three Rivers School District
Danny L. York, Zone 2 He is the incumbent. Recommendation from Kate Dwyer:  “I am the IV school board rep for TRSD. Both Paul Kelly and Danny York have served with intelligence and respect. TRSD is on a good path, with clear board goals and increasing grad rates. I would like to continue to serve with both Paul and Danny. The challenger would bring disruption. Please vote for the board to continue in its current form.”
Judy Ahrens, Zone 2 Supports Constitution Party Education platform that all education should be private (no public schools). See Courier front page article of May 1st.
