Ballots are being collected in the special election for the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District (PRJUSD)

After being ousted from a spot on the PRJUSD Board of Trustees, Kenney Enney is running to reclaim his position.

"I was on the board for 60 days, I've watched the board meetings and attended board meetings for the last couple of years, and those issues are never addressed, and that's really the fault of the board," Enney said. "The board, again, should be focused on its primary mission, its core competencies, which are academics and safety."

Angela Hollander is the other name on the ballot.She has been involved with the district for years but is now looking to become a board member.

"I believe in the promise of public education. We have to educate all of our children, and it's vitally important," Hollander said. "Being a first-generation student myself [on her father's side] , I understand what families face sometimes when they're new to the community, and we have to make them feel welcomed. That's my passion. That's a passion of my family."

Officials with the County of San Luis Obispo say the special election will cost the district almost $500,000.

County election officials say they expect to have all ballots counted by mid-May.
