Voters grant Preston another term, deny hospital district bondswebmaster May 13, 2020 0 COMMENTS
Muleshoe voters granted Curtis Preston another term on the Muleshoe Independent School District School Board.
Cory Contreras ran as Preston’s opponent but came up six votes short. Preston won with a vote of 21-15.
Preston was re-elected to serve on the school board in 2017. It’s unclear exactly how long he’s served.
Voters also granted the City of Muleshoe to continue to use local sales and use tax to go toward maintenance and street repairs for the city. The rate of one quarter of one percent was authorized. The tax expires in four years.
The authorization was granted with a vote of 236-69.
Two propositions for the Muleshoe Area Hospital District failed.
The propositions included a $9 million bond and a levy of annual taxes by the hospital district’s board of directors for a rate not to exceed 60 cents on each $100 valuation.
Voters denied the tax levy with a vote of 271-229. The bond failed by a vote of 269-238.
