Chinook Trail Elementary School in the Cordera neighborhood in District 20

Registered voters in Colorado Springs should have received their mail-in ballots by now.  They’re due back in the election office by November 3rd, and in addition to the ballot issues everyone’s talking about, there are school board races for a number of districts.  (Here’s more information on Ballot Issue 2C.)

Listed below is the contact information to the candidates up for election for each school district.  I’ve made every effort to provide as much information as possible, but unfortunately wasn’t able to find information for all of the candidates.  Please leave a comment if you know of additional information not listed here.

Here are quick links to access the information for different districts. Click “read more” at the bottom to expand this post.  If you’d like to view a school district map or CSAP reports by district and grade level, look here.

Manitou Springs School District 14

Director – four year term, vote for two:

Marsha Ann Weimer – (WITHDRAWN)

Molly Stevens
No information found.

Clemente “Gino” Mendoza
No information found.

Note: According to the Gazette, “Molly Stevens and Gino Mendoza likely will be named the newest members of the Manitou Springs School District 14 Board of Education before the votes are counted in November. That’s because the third candidate, Marsha Weimer, withdrew from the race last week for personal reasons. But it was too late to change the certified ballot, which had gone to the printer, said Liz Olson, El Paso County election manager. The votes for Stevens and Mendoza will be counted, but it’s probably not necessary.”
