Anti-ID candidate outvoted by pro-ID candidate in Dover school board race!
Geesey -- 1162
Brown -- 934
However, neither candidate got enough votes to qualify for the fall ballot.
Anyway, contrary to what Fatheaded Ed Brayton seems to believe, the election was apparently not a referendum on the ID policy. Otherwise, how does he explain why Geesey got more votes than Brown? Also, the board incumbents who lost the fall 2005 elections all lost by comparatively small margins.
Heather Geesey is the only member of the current board who was consistent from beginning to end -- she voted for the ID policy and she voted to appeal the Kitzmiller decision. On the other hand, the two-timing other current members of the board campaigned against the ID policy but refused to repeal it in early December when a repeal might have saved the school district a lot of money in attorney fees.
