October 25, 2022 (Santee) -- The Santee School District’s board of trustees has three seats of the board’s five seats up for election this cycle.
However, for Seat Number 3, there is only one candidate, incumbent Dustin Burns.
For Seat Number 1, there are two candidates, Ron Burner, a realtor, and incumbent Barbara Ryan.
For Seat Number 5, three candidates are on the ballot: Joseph Dolin, a sales supervisor; incumbent Ken Fox, who has served on the board for 12 years; and Tracie Thill, who describes herself as a parent/ educator/ advocate.
East County Magazine sent out questionnaires to all six candidates and received two responses — from Burner and Thill -- which are published in full below.
