Five Incumbents Retain School Board Seats

Perry Kwok, Kristin Gallagher get three more years on Washington Township Board of Education.

Two incumbents have been elected to round out the Washington Township Board of Education, while all three incumbents vying for a seat on the West Morris Regional School Board also stayed put after Tuesday's General Election.

Perry Kwok was elected to his second consecutive term on the K-8 board of education, and he's joined by Kristin Gallagher, who was elected to her first full term after being appointed in the summer of 2011. 

Kwok received 4,739 votes and Gallagher received 4,993 votes.

There were 272 write-in votes cast for the Washington Township Board of Education, but the names of those cast were not yet released.

Joseph Galayda (4,987 votes) and John Meyer (5,112 votes) both were re-elected to three-year seats. Tom Richar (5,075 votes) was re-elected to a one-year seat. All three ran unopposed.

According to the Morris County Clerk's office, 8,687 residents punched ballots Tuesday out of Washington Township's 13,373 registered voters.

Both school boards voted to move their elections to coincide with the General Election earlier this year when Governor Chris Christie gave the option to do so.
