Problems at the Polls

An unfortunate turn of events happened today (March 21st) when some of you went to the polls to vote on the library issue -- the question was not on your ballot.

Unfortunately, although all of the proper paperwork was filed, the question for possible annexation of some areas into the Mississippi Valley Public Library District did not get on the ballot in St. Clair County. I have been in contact with the Counties, the State Board of Elections and with our library lawyer and we are already working toward a solution although it will not be instantaneous.

Please do not let this stop you from voting. We have no idea what the outcomes will mean at this point. I will keep you updated as to the direction that this will all take.

Thank you all for your understanding and support.
