Second Time's the Charm in Kuna, Voters Approve $6.3M School Levy

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2014 at 9:05 AM

Election officials in Kuna were caught off guard late Tuesday when some precincts reported that they were running out of ballots. Voters still waiting in line were assured that everyone would be able to vote, and by the time ballots had been counted, voters had narrowly passed a $6.38 million two-year school levy.

Tuesday night's vote came in the wake of a narrow defeat of the same levy measure in March. But soon after that vote, levy supporters said they wanted another crack at trying to convince enough voters to approve the measure in an effort to keep school staffing at current levels.

Levy backers had argued that the Kuna school district had seen a $9 million drop in state school funding over the last five years.
