Parkway School Board Incumbents Keep Positions

Three incumbents retain their positions after Tuesday's election, but a newcomer came in close behind and says she'll stay active in the district.

UPDATED: 3:35 p.m. Wednesday-

Voters decided Tuesday that incumbent Parkway School Board members Dee Mogerman, Bruce Major and Chris Jacob should keep their positions. Voters could select three of four candidates to vote for in the Parkway School Board election.

Jacob received the most votes, with 8,237 votes, or 26.10 percent. Mogerman garnered 8,162 votes, or 25.86 percent. Major slipped in with 7,994 votes, or 25.33 percent.

Patch called each of the candidates late Tuesday night, but could  only reach Jacob for comment.

Jacob spoke with Patch about his upcoming three-year term. He said the board will work hard to implement Project Parkway over the next term. He also looks forward to working with the new superintendent, Keith Marty.

Jacob said the school board secretary will swear him in for his next term on April 13.

Newcomer Patricia Adair received 7,034 votes, or 22.29 percent of the vote, but that defeat hasn’t deterred her from staying active in the district.

 She tells Patch Wednesday that she hopes the Parkway School Board will continue its progress on Project Parkway, the district's multi-year strategic planning effort. Adair said she would also like to see the board come up with a continuous improvement plan.

 As for what’s next for Adair, she said she wants to contribute in different ways. Adair told Patch that she hopes to volunteer in the district. She said plans to speak with Don Senti, Parkway’s interim superintendent, about where her skills will best serve Parkway.

Write-in candidates received 134 votes, or .42 percent.
