And the results of the SC election:
Menin, who won re-election for a four year term, garnered 2,371 votes; that will make ten consecutive years on the School Committee with no time off for good behaviour; not that Menin knows what good behaviour is.
Nick deKanter will occupy the third seat, finishing with 1,742 votes.
Worth noting is that there were 5,675 blanks; which would indicate a lot of "bullet voting," where you vote for only one or two candidates, or none at all. This occurred most heavily in Ward 2, Ward 4 and Ward 6. More analysis on this tmrw; I will also put in a little time redesigning the page.
I will continue to blog about educational issues and Newburyport Schools over the next four years.
Thanks, voters, thanks.
