Recount confirms bond victory for Clayton (Mo.) district

June 1, 2009
$51 million proposal ekes out narrow win

From The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: A recount has upheld the passage in April of the Clayton (Mo.) School District's $51 million bond issue for school improvements. The St. Louis County Election Board ruled in favor of the district. Opponents of the bond issue had asked for the recount after its narrow passage April 7. The bond issue would have failed if three people who voted for the issue had voted against it. The recount results were unchanged from the results previously reported: 1,530 for and 1,143 against, or a 57.23 percent majority, with 57.14 percent needed for approval.

MARCH 2009 from The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The Clayton (Mo.) School Board has placed a $51 million bond issue on the April 7 ballot. The money would go toward renovations at the high school, each of the district's three elementary schools and the family center. Some district residents told the board at a recent meeting that they could not support bond issue they oppose a proposed land swap between the district and Washington University. That deal, which would provide a site for a middle school, is not part of the April ballot proposal.
