DICKINSON - Two incumbents are returning to the Dickinson School Board as the result of Tuesday’s election.
Kris Fehr garnered 928 votes while Leslie Ross tallied 796 votes and newcomer Tom Dietz collected 597 votes from a total of 1,257 district patrons who went to the polls.
Fehr said Tuesday’s results were good to hear and felt her name recognition was a plus at the polls to earn her third term on the board.
“I’m involved in a lot of committees and a lot of volunteer work in the community,” she said. “I’m hoping people were really looking at that and thinking I’m doing a good job and doing the best for students and representing the patrons of the school district.”
Fehr did no campaigning other than to run a newspaper advertisement, and did make herself available to speak to anyone about district matters, but no one felt a need.
Meanwhile, Ross is looking forward to her second four years on the board.
“I certainly thank the folks who go out to the polls. There’s a lot of big issues going on, especially with the city election,” Ross said. “I’m very pleased with the number of people who went out for the school board election.”
Ross believes it will be another great four years of serving on the board.
“We have a lot of things we want to do. We have an opportunity to shore up some things in our system that need help and we’re working toward that,” Ross said. “Hopefully in the next four year I can represent our kids and our constituents to the very best of my ability. I’m very pleased with the results.”
Dietz did not return a call for comment on the results.
