Last November, questionnaires were distributed to every residence in the district. A total of 295 questionnaires were completed and returned. The study’s confidence level is 95 percent, which means that in 95 cases out of 100, the survey results would represent the preferences of all district residents had they all responded to the survey. The survey, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.7 percent, was conducted in collaboration with a communications consultant and district personnel.

That position would have a six-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2014. An election would be held in 2013 to seat a new full-time judge.
