The St. Michael-Albertville school board had three open seats up for election this fall, with four candidates running and none of them incumbents.
The four candidates on the ballot include Eric Boone, Tim Lewis, Larry Sorensen and Carol Steffens, and the biggest vote-getters are Steffens with 4,969 votes, Lewis with 4,598 and Sorensen with 4,102. Boone received 3,796 votes.
Lewis and Sorensen will be new to the board. While Steffens is not an incumbent, she was a member of the school board until 2016.
The three newly elected board members thanked their supporters this morning on social media, saying they greatly appreciate the voters’ support.
“As I’ve said before I will be your voice,” Steffens wrote. “If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to serving you. Thank you again very much for this honor.”
“Thank you everyone for your support,” Sorensen said. “This wouldn’t have happened without it. I look forward to serving as your School Board representative for the next 4 years.”
“I am extremely proud and honored to be selected by each of you and so many others in the STMA Community,” Lewis said. “I wish I could thank each and every person individually for the help and support and even their vote. I look forward to working side by side with the three current board members and the other two elected to continue what many have worked thus far to accomplish.”
