Trustee Area Two is the only election appearing on the ballot in November.

Incumbent Board President Carrie Green is being challenged by former Trustee Rob Warren.

Green was first elected to her seat in November 2014, and has served as the Area Two Trustee since December 2014.

Warren previously served as the Winters JUSD Area 4 Trustee for 10 years before his resignation on Dec. 14, 2020 over concerns of transparency. Warren’s residence is now in Trustee Area Two following the approval of the Trustee Area Redistricting Map at the Feb. 3 meeting.

Trustee Joedy Michael is running uncontested for his Trustee Area Three seat.

No candidates filed for the Trustee Area Four seat.Trustee Candi Ochoa is currently serving in the Area Four seat. Her term expires December 2022.

In accordance with the Winters Joint Unified School Board Bylaw 9223 – Filling Vacancies, when a vacancy occurs due to lack of candidates, a district-wide election is not held. Instead, the Trustees appoint a qualified individual to the seat at a meeting prior to the day of the regularly scheduled election.

Acting Superintendent Phoebe Girimonte said the latest date the board could appoint is Nov. 3. She said the Trustees will receive information of the process at the upcoming Winters JUSD school board meeting on Sept. 1.
