Voters reject library district levy lid lift request; Whittle wins

August 17, 2011

Once again, Stevens County voters rejected a plan to raise the Stevens County Library District’s levy rate to 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation.
In preliminary primary election results, voters overwhelmingly rejected the plan 5,332-3,635. A simple majority of yes votes was needed for passage.
Library district officials had hoped that the restored levy rate would augment the shrinking annual operating budget.
• In the only other primary election race, Deer Park School Board incumbent Jeff Whittle easily outpolled his two challenger.
Whittle received 675 votes, more than challengers Paul Lewis (322) and Joshua Gilstrap (224) received combined.
Whittle will face off against Lewis in the Nov. 8 general election.
