Good morning.

Stacey Bastian, current interim Twin Rivers Unified trustee has won election to the TRUSD District Four seat in an overwhelming, unprecedented landslide victory over Douglas Bolsover.

The race was called for Bastian with the first update at 8:15 pm last night when the first returns showed that Bastian had a 789-163 lead over Bolsover with just 8.74% of the votes counted, which was an insurmountable lead.

As of 10pm, Bastian led 72% to 15%.

I want to thank all of my community who supported this journey, the ones who walked, posted, called and put signs in your yards. You are the true hero of this campaign, the grass roots of area 4, it will be an honor to continue to represent such great people. Together we can make our schools the shining beacon on the hill, a destination where every kid feels welcome, safe and loved. I am so honored to serve as your Board of Trustee. My heart is humbled and I have no words on what this means to me and my family. I assure you I will make you proud and I thank you for continuing this legacy that my Dad instilled in me. This Community did him proud and I couldn’t be more grateful.
