School Board Voter Guide for the June Primary 

Ballots have been mailed out to registered voters in California. The Sacramento County Republican Party endorsed candidates for Congressional, Legislative, and some local offices, including the Sacramento County Board of Education and Twin Rivers School District.

There is no doubt that these past two years have seen a greater need for parent involvement in public schools. Many people came to realize how important it is to have leaders on school boards who will listen to the people whose children they serve, while holding school officials accountable for their conduct around students.

Paul Keefer is an endorsed candidate running for re-election to the Sacramento County Board of Education, Area 3. Stacey Bastian is an endorsed candidate running for re-election to the Twin River School District Board of Trustees, Area 4. Both appear on the June ballot, and if re-elected, they will each serve a four-year term.

Stacey Bastian – Twin Rivers School Board, Area 4 (District Map)

In her bid for a full term on the Twin River School Board, Stacey Bastian is running as an incumbent. Upon the passing of her father, a longtime member of the Twin Rivers School Board, she was appointed to complete his term. In addition to having a proven record of public service, Bastian is committed to ensuring students at school are loved and supported.

“My Father taught me well,” Bastian said. “I have strived to make my family and community proud of the work I have done. You have my word, that if entrusted with our children’s education, I will serve them well.”

Stacey has been very involved in local service and community organizations in addition to serving as Vice Chair of the Rio Linda Elverta Recreation and Parks District. She was instrumental in saving one of the neighborhood schools, coordinating meetings with parents and voicing opposition from the community. She worked closely with the District, serving on the 7-11 Committee to make decisions on the sale of unused district property to generate income. She has also served on the PTA at Westside Elementary School and volunteered for numerous events at Rio Linda High School.

Her dedication to the community and its children more than qualify her to serve a full term on the Twin Rivers School Board.
