With nearly all ballots tallied from Tuesday’s special election, attorney Ira Glasky has emerged as the top vote-getter in the race for the open seat on the IUSD Board of Education.
Glasky, formerly a member of the district’s Finance Committee, has received 5,528 votes, or 41.6 percent of the total, with all 88 precincts reporting. Carolyn Inmon, a retired teacher, is second with 4,879 votes, or 36.76 percent. Bob Vu, an educator, scientist and entrepreneur, finished with 2,883 votes, or 21.7 percent.
After Dr. Gavin Huntley-Fenner announced his resignation in October, board members had to decide whether to hold a special election that would cost IUSD hundreds of thousands of dollars or make a provisional appointment for the one-year balance of the term. They chose the latter option and selected Glasky to serve through November 2014. But petitioners later gathered enough signatures to invalidate the appointment process and force a special election.
Pending the tally of some additional absentee ballots and certification of the results, Glasky is poised to once again take over a seat set to expire in December, though he has indicated his intent to run for a full four-year term in the Nov. 4 election.
