Incumbents Karen Simon and John E. Murrer handily defeated challengers Lacy L. Ivicevich and David A. Dayton in the Tuesday, Nov. 7, general election. KfNn Re-elected to Susanville School District School Board According to final figures re- leased by the Lassen County Clerk, Simon was the top vote- getter with 1,870 (32.92 per- cent), Murrer received 1,753 (30.86 percent), Ivicevich got 1,332 (23.45 percent), and Day- ton took 704 (12.39 percent). Prior to the election, Dayton withdrew from the rce be- cause he decided he needed to learn more about the district's operation. He thanked his sup- porters and said he looked for- ward to the 2001 election. A total of 5,681 votes were cast in the race, 4,408 in 14 precincts on election day and another 1,273 as absentee bal- lots. "I'm very appreciative of the all the people who came out and voted and supported me," Simon said. "I think there are a lot of positive things happen- ing in our district, and person- ally I think the vote reflects that the people are supporting what we're doing." Simon, a school counselor with more than 15 years expe- rience, said she wasn't com- fortable running for re-elec- tion with an incumbent tag at- tached to her name on the bal- lot. "I had mixed feelings about running as an incumbent," Si- mon said. "I felt more comfort- able just saying I'm a school counselor, and I'm running again. I wanted people to look into the candidates. I appreci- ate the Times running the can- didate profiles. It's a great ser- vice to the community." "I'm happy, absolutely" said Murrer. "I'd just like to thank all the people who supported me. I think the results show the voters thought I did a good enough job - they were willing to re-elect me. I'm going to do my best not to disappoint them."

Retains seat on Susanville School District School Board they've been doing. He said he'd "like to see the Diamond View and McKinley School remodeling projects come to fruition." Murrer said he was also con- cerned about improving the curriculum, especially adding art instruction at Diamond View School. The second-term trustee also hoped class sizes in the upper grades could be reduced. "I think classrooms with 25 kids are better for the staff and the students," Murrer said. "I think it makes a better learn- ing environment." "My interest in the whole thing is trying to provide a good, quality education for all the students in Susanville," said Murrer. "I want to see Diamond View School become a place where parents would want to send their kids. A lot of students leave the district instead of go. ing there, but I think it's a re- ally good school with a really good staff. I think it's had a bad rap," he said.
