Keppel to pay attorney for letter on election system

PEARBLOSSOM — The Keppel Union School District will pay $27,000 to attorney Kevin Shenkman on behalf of his client, Southwest Voter Registration Project, and its members who live within the District’s boundaries.

Shenk­man sent the District a letter via certified mail dated Sept. 26, alleging that Keppel’s current at-large election system is racially polarized and dilutes the minority vote and therefore violates the California Voting Rights Act.
