Update December 16, 2020: Gene Doxey won the coin toss -- and the seat on the Warner Sprngs Unified School District board.
December 9, 2020 (Warner Springs) – It’s been a wild week in Warner Springs. First, an earthquake centered near the tiny mountain town jolted residents awake on Sunday morning. Then high winds prompted SDG&E to shut off power in the area for multiple days, forcing closure of schools in the Warner Springs Unified School District.
Now, an election for one of three seats on the school board has ended in a draw. Gene Doxey and Terry Cox each got 352 votes, tying for third place. There’s an important lesson to be learned for parents and students: every vote counts!
