The County Office of Education informed the Benicia Unified School District of a revised Special Election date for the Area 5 Trustee vacancy. The date was initially scheduled for March 7, 2023 but is now scheduled for April 11, 2023. Here is an excerpt from the communication received by the District.
In accordance with California Education Code sections 5091(c) and (f), and Elections Code sections 100 and 104, a petition for a special election for Trustee Area 5 of the Benicia Unified School District (BUSD) Governing Board was received by the county superintendent of schools’ office on November 30, 2022. After reviewing the petition, in collaboration with the Registrar of Voters office, to ensure that it meets the requirements of the law (Education Code sections 5091(c) and (f), Elections Code sections 100 and 104), I deem the petition to be sufficient and, upon further consultation with legal counsel, call for a revised special election date on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, to provide the necessary candidate filing period and time for election preparations. This will be a traditional poll place election. (Election Code section 4000).
