The Board of Education of the County of Wood, pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 13, Article 1, Section 25, of the West Virginia Code of 1931, as amended, has caused to be transmitted to me duly certified copies of all the orders, ordinances, proclamations, notices, advertisements, affidavits, resolutions and records of the proceedings connected with or pertaining to such Bond Issue, and I have examined the same.

 

It appears from the records so transmitted to me that the proposition of incurring debt and issuing bonds, as provided in said Order, twenty thousand three hundred ten (20,310) votes were cast for and fourteen thousand two hundred ninety five (14,295) votes were cast against the issuance of said bonds, so that fifty-eight and sixty-nine hundredths percent (58.69{4ceb532c6f579389df471c6c1e832caf2346b74dc60fcbf6aabd4d29df3baf9c}) of the voters in said election voted in favor of incurring debt and issuing bonds as provided in the Order.

 

In my opinion, there has been substantial compliance with the law relating to the issuance of said bonds and I, therefore, approve the validity of such Bond Issue pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 13, Article 1, Section 25, of the West Virginia Code, 1931, as amended.
