Election Results

For those of you keeping count, we’re 4 for 4.

The results are in and the next Prince William County School Board will be:
Chairman: Milt Johns
Gainesville: Alyson Satterwhite
Brentsville: Gil Trenum
Neabsco: Lisa Bell
Potomac: Betty Covington
Coles: Dr Otaigbe
Woodbridge: Denita Ramirez
Occoquan: Grant Lattin

You can find full election results, including precinct numbers, here.

Congratulations to the winners. One of the things I learned this election was that the people who actually pay attention to education issues actually pay attention. Unfortunately, what gets us excited sometimes isn’t what I’d prefer get us excited, but I guess when it comes down to it, boundaries are a lot more exciting than multiplication facts and long division.

I hope we can keep the passion and enthusiasm going. We have good schools, but they could be so much better. Making them better is going to require that parents, teachers, and elected officials expose problems and weaknesses and force the district to develop plans for addressing those problems and weaknesses. The election isn’t the end – it’s just the beginning of the battle we have to make if we want our schools to be the best in the state.
