Special Election to be held Tuesday in Citrus Heights for school board seat

Sentinel staff report–
The special election to replace the school board seat left vacant by the late Steve Miller will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 7, with one in-person vote center open in Citrus Heights at the Crosswoods Community Center on Auburn Boulevard.

Unlike in prior years, voters will not be able to vote in person at City Hall, but can drop off ballots in person at a secure drop box outside City Hall 24-hours-a-day, and until 8 p.m. on Election Day. According to the County Elections department website, Crosswoods Community Center is located at 6742 Auburn Blvd., and is open for in-person voting from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with extended hours of 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. Ballots can also be dropped off at the Rusch Park Community Center.

The Area 7 school board seat largely covers Citrus Heights, except for several portions of the city south of Greenback Lane and east of Mariposa Avenue.

Two candidates are running for school board for the Area 7 seat on the San Juan Unified School District’s governing board. Candidate Murad “Moe” Sarama has been endorsed by Citrus Heights Councilwoman Porsche Middleton as well as the Democratic Party of Sacramento County, while candidate Manuel Perez has been endorsed by Mayor Tim Schaefer and the Sacramento County Republican Party.
