Based on a plan designed by Chairman Ron Blackmon, members of the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees may be more directly involved in educating the public about a proposed second set of construction-related referenda for November 2016. Voters rejected a pair of similar referenda in November 2014, outlining a list of construction projects to be paid for through a bond, which would be refunded through a 1-cent sales tax. Although a majority of people voted “no” on both referenda, more did in the case of the penny sales tax measure than on the construction bond question.
