Two incumbents, one newcomer elected to Turner School Board
TOWN OF BELOIT--A newly-elected Beloit Turner School Board member who opposed the high school referendum said she hopes the board got the message from voters.
“I’m hoping that they want to move forward and not continuously rework this referendum,” said Kimberly Ward, a parent who was elected to the school board Tuesday.
Ward was the second-highest vote-getter with 966 votes among the six candidates. Incumbents Dannie Shear and Jim Olson were re-elected, receiving 1,169 and 877 votes respectively.
The results also mean the end of a long run for incumbent Joan Stirrat, who has served on the board for 30 years. Teacher Stephen Mrizek and Stirrat rounded out the candidates.
Voters on Tuesday turned down a $28 million referendum for a new high school 1,350 to 647.
