School Board candidates lead the ballot Tuesday

Voters locally on Tuesday will decide a three-way race for two school board positions and whether Jasper County will collect a use tax.

You can find a sample ballot for what you’ll be voting on at the Jasper County website.

The current terms of Lisa Robinson and Jason Woodmansee on the Webb City R-7 School Board are ending, and they are both seeking reelection.

Erin Taylor is also on the ballot for one those two open seats. She was also a candidate last year.


The Jasper County Commission is asking voters to apply the same tax it collects for local purchases to online purchases. That would be a 3.75% use tax.


Most of the attention on Tuesday night will be on the proposed extension of a 3/8th cent sales tax to fund capital improvements in Joplin for the next 12 years.

The Carl Junction R-1 School Board is placing on the ballot Proposition K.I.D.S., an $18.5 million bond issue – with no tax increase – for a variety of improvements.
