Bond support group fills committee posts
Vote for Kids, the citizens group that is spearheading efforts to pass the Lansing school bond issue in April, will meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the commons area of Lansing Middle School, 509 W. Ida St.
The group recently appointed leaders for its committees as the members work to educate voters about the referendum.
Carolyn Jaqua and Nancy Collard will chair the Vote for Kids Committee. Bernd Ingram, a member of the district's Facilities Planning Committee, and Rob Nicholas, who is running for a seat on the school board, will chair the Publicity Committee.
Ali Zeck, also a member of the Facilities Planning Committee, and Randal Bagby, schools superintendent, will chair the Speaker's Bureau, which is in charge of addressing and appealing to local businesses and groups.
Tom Young will chair the Volunteers Committee, and Blain Weeks will chair the Finance Committee.
There are more than 30 people currently serving on committees.
Zeck, who is on the steering committee that oversees the campaign, said there still was plenty of room for more volunteers.
The $23.6 million bond would be used for a new K-5 elementary building, an auditorium addition to the existing high school and improvements to streets and bus routing.
Anyone with questions about Wednesday's meeting can contact Zeck at 250-0663.
