Fairview Park election wrap-up
By Kevin Kelley
Mark St. John and Joslyn Dalton, incumbents on the Fairview Park City Schools Board of Education, retained their seats for another four years in the Nov. 5 election. They topped newcomer Tanya Foose in the three-person race for two seats.
Dalton, a faculty member and compliance coordinator in the health information technology program at Cuyahoga Community College who was appointed to the board in June 2012, was the top vote-getter with 1,499 votes. St. John, a seventh-grade science teacher at Independence Middle School who has served on the board for six years, received 1,396 votes.
Foose, the director of admissions at ITT Technical Institute, received 1,166 votes, according to unofficial results from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
In a separate race, Katie Davis received 2,100 votes in an unopposed school board race to complete the unexpired term of former board President Brad Lamb, who resigned in May 2011. Lamb failed in his attempt Tuesday to win election to the Westlake City Schools Board of Elections.
Issue 39, the renewal of a quarter-percent income tax dedicated to street repairs, passed 72.5 to 27.5 percent, or 2,557 to 970 votes. The tax was renewed for eight years.
