Flagler County School Board Candidates Primary Election Results

In the School Board District 3 race the incumbent Trevor Tucker received 56% of the votes, against his challanger Mark Ray's 44%.

Last year, Tucker was appointed to the School Board by Governor Charlie Crist, to fill Peter Palmer's term as School Board Member at District 3.

With his clear victory in  the elections, Tucker holds on to his seat in the Flagler County School Board.

The more crowded School Board District 5 race has one candidate clearly lost, but no one to claim the School Board seat.  We'll have to wait till November for that.

In the Disctrict 5 race, Peter Peligian is out of the race with only 22% of the votes.

John Fischer is the winner with 44.07% of the votes, followed by Raven Sword with 34.19% of the votes.

The two will have to face each other in the general election on November 2, 2010.
