Brigante, Malcow and Rhyner Win Re-Election to Watchung School Board
Georgia Glasser-Nehls also tapped for school board in second bid.
Voters returned Tiffany Brigante, John Malcow and James Rhyner to the Watchung Borough Board of Education, Tuesday.
The three re-elected board members will join Georgia Glasser-Nehls, who filed to complete the unexpired term of Wendy Robinson, which Rhyner had been appointed to fill until the end of the year.
Brigante and Malchow had also been appointed to fill unexpired terms of former board members—Brigante joined the board in June, stepping in to complete Shelly Milstein's term, while Malchow joined the board in May, filling the seat of Mary Lou DiRosa.
The historic school board voting—the first in November's general election—also included one candidate for one, three-year term on the Watchung Hills Regional Board of Education, Barry Hunsinger, who received 1,250 votes.
The vote tallies represent only the voting today, and does not include the votes cast over the weekend in the special early voting the state permitted this year as many residents were battling power outages following Hurricane Sandy. The total number of votes cast—2,439—represents just 55.8 percent of the borough's 4,365 registered voters. Typically, about 80 percent of Watchung voters turnout for presidential elections, so vote totals will certainly change when added.
