We are in the home stretch of this election year! Next Tuesday is election day and I hope that you will all join me in VOTING! In addition to critical state and federal elections, there are a number of Piedmont elections and initiatives taking place that will impact our schools and community for years to come.

Piedmont Elections: After eight and a half years of service to our community, Sarah Pearson and Andrea Swenson will be retiring from the School Board. There are three open seats, with Cory Smegal running for a second term joined by four additional candidates. If you are still in the process of deciding who to vote for, you can view the School Board Candidate Forum that took place at the beginning of the month on the HPC website to get some insight into the candidate’s positions on important issues facing our schools.

Additionally, there four candidates running for two open city council seats. And, measure UU, which would fund a new pool complex for Piedmont, is on the ballot. This measure has received unanimous endorsement from all Piedmont parents clubs and city council, amongst other community organizations.

A friendly reminder that there is a ballot drop box in the center of town at the corner of Highland Way and Mountain Avenue. Dropping your ballot off at the drop box or your polling location in person before or on election day will ensure that it is received in time to be counted.

Volunteers Needed! Many parents have expressed an interest in helping our teachers and administrators with the Herculean task of reopening our schools. HPC will be working with Anne to channel volunteers as needs arise. We are currently looking for volunteers to help produce and edit short videos related to school reopening. If you or someone you know has video production or editing skills and would be willing to help, please contact me.

Many thanks,

Lindsay Thomasson

HPC President
