Sandra Herndon, ticket # 100296.

Local Elections Matter!

2019 is the year for municipal elections: city, school district, fire district, and Port elected officials.

It is just as important to vote for these races as for the state and national races that occur every four years. Here's why: decisions made by cities and special purpose districts affect our day to day lives in so many ways.

Encourage everyone you know to vote in the Primary Election on August 6 and the General Election on November 5.
