Greenland- Paula Schoonover garnered 58 percent of the votes in the run-off election last week, beating Keith Lawson to win the final seat on Greenland School District’s newly formed school board.
The Washington County Election Commission reported that 16 percent of voters in Greenland’s Zone 2 turned out to vote in the Oct. 14 run-off. Schoonover received 52 votes, Lawson 38. Schoonover said she expected to be sworn-in this week.
“I’m glad to be past the election part,” said Schoonover following her first school board meeting Monday night.
“I think we’re (school board) pretty well balanced…we all bring something a little different to the table.”
