No surprise in the District 2 school board runoff: John Tedesco, who finished first with almost 50 percent of the vote in the five-way race on October 6, defeated Cathy Truitt by a 3-to-1 margin tonight. Election results are here. Truitt called for the runoff, then tried to rescind her call while endorsing Tedesco, then said she'd serve if elected when the State Board of Elections ruled that the runoff must go on. Not surprisingly, Tedesco's side turned out in force to make sure she didn't get the chance.
We reported on Tedesco a couple of weeks ago. Nothing's changed from his standpoint -- that we know of.
