Longtime school board member Debra Mullins will retain her seat on the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education for at least one more year, according to unofficial election results released Tuesday night.
Though the election would normally be for a three-year seat, voters also chose to adopt Plan B of Proposition No. 1, which will revamp school board representation starting next year.
"I'm happy that the voters came out. I'm looking forward to another opportunity to work with the parents and students in the district," Mullins said. "Probably in one year all the seats will be up for election again though."
Mullins faced repeat candidate Gene Dyson in the race for school board Seat A in Tuesday's general election. It was Dyson's fourth attempt at a seat on the board. He was not available for comment Tuesday night.
Mullins led Dyson about 58 percent to 40 percent late Tuesday with 26 of 29 precincts reporting.
Also re-elected to the board Tuesday were incumbent candidates Dr. John Nels Anderson and Margaret Gilman, in Seats B and C, respectively. Both ran unopposed.
Anderson received about 84 percent of the votes; nearly 16 percent went to write-in candidates. Gilman received more than 97 percent of the votes.
