PASCO — At least one of the two contested Pasco School Board races appear to have been decided.
The initial tally of Nov. 2 general election ballots shows Steven Christensen with an overwhelming lead over Cynthia Ledesma in the raced for the Position No. 3 at-large School Board seat.
As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, Christensen had 5,161 votes (72.63%) while Ledesma had 1,917 votes (26.98%).
The race for the Position No. 5 at-large seat wasn’t so clear.
As of the end of counting Tuesday, Amy Freeman Phillips had a 824 vote lead over Michelle Andres.
Phillips had 3,934 votes (55.22%), while Andres had 3,110 (43.66%).
While the percentages look large, Franklin County election officials may still have thousands of late-arriving ballots to count.
