Kids First Officially Win School Board Elections
With all the votes counted, the Kids First candidates have officially won the school board elections.
Mail in ballots and provisionals have not altered the outcome of the elections on November 6.
This means that the three Kids First candidates — Tom Kluepfel, Jean Marie Mitchell and incumbent Ruth McAllister — have secured their seats on the board, guaranteeing the slate's super majority on the board.
The total results, according to the Hudson County Board of Elections, are as follows:
Kluepfel: 4,259 votes
Mitchell: 4,097 votes
McAllister: 4,216 votes
The Move Forward candidates — the opposing ticket made up of Anthony Oland, Elizabeth Markevitch and Felice Vazquez — gained votes with the mail in ballots, but enough to win.
Oland: 3,499 votes
Markevitch: 4,019 votes
Vazquez: 3,481 votes.
Independent candidate Patricia Waiters got 1,284 votes.
