MADERA - While the future of our country maybe in question to nearly fifty percent of the voters after last night's Presidential election, the future of Madera is on track for continued success and safety. Measure K, a half cent sales tax increase that will benefit police and fire protection, easily passed with over 80% of the voters approval. It took the lead from the absentee ballots reported at 8:30pm all the way to the final count at 11:25pm.

It was the same for the status quo on the Madera Unified School District's Board of Trustees, with Ray Siebert and Ric Arredondo easily winning their reelection. And after a lot of hard work with his campaign walking door to door meeting the voters of Madera's district 2, Jose Rodriguez had a fairly easy election night that resulted winning his own seat.
