The results are finally in from last week’s Red Bank Board of Education election, which were delayed by a snafu.
In addition to the previously announced victor Ben Forest, an incumbent, winners were write-in winners Ann Goldman
of McLaren Street and Marjorie Lowe of Wall Street, the Asbury Park Press reports.
Three seats were open, but only Forest formally declared an interest in having one. He got 352 votes.
But because of multiple spellings of names of write-in candidates, officials could not immediately sort out who might have won the two seats that went unsought on the ballot.
Goldman received 18 write-in votes and Lowe 16 votes, with Ann Stone, the next closest with 4 votes, the Press reports, quoting Bertha Sumick, special deputy to the county clerk.
