It took nearly a full day after the polls closed, but the Washington Township Board of Education secured its final member after nearly 20 write-in candidates were put on ballots during Tuesday's General Election.
Michael St. Jacques received 127 write-in votes, according to Washington Township Administrator Debbie Burd. That total beat out more than a dozen others, she said.
Coming in behind St. Jacques with 46 votes was Tom Lotito, Burd said. The rest of the field received less than 10 write-in votes each.
St. Jacques has coached his daughter's soccer team and assisted with his son's baseball team, he said. He has three children in the school district.
The newest member of the K-8 Board of Education will be sworn in at its January organization meeting.
