Are you one of the almost 10,000 people who voted for Eric Meadows to represent Kenosha County on the Kenosha Unified School District Board of Education ? If so, you might be upset to learn that the Kenosha Unified School District and their attorneys are set to overturn the results of the spring 2022 election.
According to a source within the district, officials are set to remove Meadows from the school board this upcoming April, two years earlier than what the voters intended. The Wisconsin Elections Commission is one of the motivating forces behind this.
Meadows term was initially set to expire in 2025. Kenosha Unified School District is alleging that they made an error in the 2022 elections due to the resignation of former School Board President Dan Wade.
We reached out to superintendent Dr. Weiss and the district’s communications team and are waiting their response.
KCE has heard from many voters who think that this is a deliberate and underhanded attempt to change the will of the voters. The board will be able to choose Meadow’s replacement this April without an election.
Reached by email Wednesday morning board president Yolanda Adams had the following to say:
“We plan to have the board’s attorney provide the details of what caused this situation at the regular February board meeting. I have high regards for Eric Meadows. He is an engaged and valuable member of the Board. The fact we have differing opinions on certain matters does not take away from my opinion of him. He has served well and I have no doubt he will continue to do so.”
KCE made email contact with KUSD Superintendent Jeffrey Weiss and he indicated that he will not be fighting the Wisconsin Elections Commission and will capitulate to the bureaucratic board.
This is a developing story.
