Voting for school board trustees on election day is important as Clearview trustees make decisions that affect the community’s economic, social and cultural life. The Board of Trustees annually manages over $33 million in tax dollars, employs over 400 people and is responsible for the care and education of over 2,300 local school-aged children.
Board policies and decisions have a tremendous impact on the local community, whether residents have children in school or not. It is important to hear from the whole community at the ballot box.
Advance elections for Ward 3 (Town of Stettler) will be held October 4 (11am-7pm), October 7 (11am-7pm), and October 11 (11am-7pm).

A public forum for the candidates will be held October 10 at 7pm at the Stettler Recreation Center.
