These are difficult times in the state of Illinois. The Governor in his state budget address cut $93 million in funding for transportation reimbursement. The Mercer County School District had projected $430,000 in transportation reimbursement from the state---they will not get that amount this year. This leaves another large hole in their budget.

Governor Quinn also mentioned that he would like to consolidate the states 868 school districts down to 300. If this was done it would be mandatory and the state would draw up the map of your school district. More local control would be lost.

Make sure you vote in the Mercer County school Board election on April 5th.. Nine candidates are vying for three four year term seats. The candidates are:

Barbara Chiles
Mike Retherford
Jessica Sackville
Greg Beckman
Ryan Struble
Marta Tucker
Bill Smock
Victor Johnson
Joseph Olson
