San Bruno Park Elementary School Districtwill have an appointed trustee fill the vacancycreated when Trustee Skip Henderson exitsMay 1.Last week,Henderson announced plans toretire from the board after 31 years due tohealth issues. On Wednesday,the Board of Trustees decided to fill the vacancy through aprovisional appointment through the rest of Henderson’s term,which expires inNovember,said Superintendent David Hutt.The vacancy will soon be posted on the dis-trict’s website,local cable television and localmedia. To apply,a person must be at least 18,a San Bruno resident,a registered voter andnot legally disqualified from holding office.Those interested will need to complete aboard candidate information sheet,which isavailable by contacting Jennifer Peponis at624-3111 or at the dis-trict’s website,sbpsd.k12.ca.us/.Applications are due to thedistrict office no later than4 p.m. Wednesday,May 8.A subcommittee of boardPresident Henry Sanchezand Vice President JimPrescott will verify theprospective candidatesbefore interviews will beconducted in later May.At the same meeting,the board requestedthat the a committee to research surplus prop-erty,called a 7-11 Committee,be added to theMay 8 agenda as an action item. The groupwould look at unused district property,such asthe soon-to-be closed Crestmoor ElementarySchool. In addition,it will consider ways touse the property to generate profit.This is not the first time the district has stud-ied surplus property. Such a committee wasestablished in late 2004. At the time,the com-mittee found about 4 acres on the lower fieldarea of John Muir Elementary School andabout 5 acres at Portola Elementary Schoolcould be considered surplus. The then closedCarl Sandburg and Engvall school sites werealso considered surplus.The former Engvall Middle School site atInterstate 280 has been leased by VB Golf,Inc. for a number of years. In 2003,a numberof trustees entertained the idea of developinga big-box retailer on the site. In 2008,adeveloper pitched building single-familyhomes and a multi-unit housing componenton the 20-acre site. Neither idea came tofruition.The district sold the former Carl Sandburgsite for $30.5 million in 2005. A number of single-family homes are now on the site.

The San Mateo County Elections Officeannounced it found 65 provisional ballots fromthe November election. Though they wouldnot change the result,Chief Elections OfficerMark Church said it was unfortunate and com-pletely unacceptable.“There is simply no excuse for this type of error in the elections process,Church said.“The importance and significance of each votecannot be understated. It is the cornerstone of our democracy. While the misplacing of provi-sional ballots is a rare incident,the misplacingof even one ballot is shocking and inexcusableto me as the chief elections officer. I am com-mitted to ensuring that each and every votecast by our citizens is accurately processed.”According to the Elections Office,a pre-liminary review of election night proceduresdetermined that the provisional ballots fromthe Redwood City Voting Center were sealedin a Red Supply Case (RSC) and delivered tothe Elections Division in San Mateo. TheRSC was then placed in the security vaultand the ballots were transferred to a coveredbin that prevented the ballots from beingseen.Of the 65 provisional envelopes found,only35 contained ballots of eligible voters from 30precincts. The remaining 30 provisionalenvelopes were not eligible voters eitherbecause they had already voted in the electionor because they were not registered. The pro-visional ballots that were found came from theRedwood City voting center,according to theElections Office.“Proper steps will be taken to avoid inci-dents of this nature from ever occurring again.A thorough review of our Elections proceduresis being conducted,and additional training willbe provided to all elections staff,Church said.The 65 provisional envelopes will remainsealed in accordance with Elections CodeSections 17301 and 17032 requiring electionmaterials to be stored for 22 months,afterwhich they will be destroyed,according to theElections Office.
