Stanley, Merris, Potosnak Leading In School Board Race

Two former Board of Education members and an incumbent are leading the pack in the quest for three open seats.

Former member Pat Stanley leads all candidates with 8,231 votes, followed by incumbent Laurie Merris with 7,018 and former board member Ed Potosnak with 6,254.

Final winners cannot be declared because half of one district has not yet been counted, nor have emergency, provisional or write-in ballots.

Somerset County will not count about 20,000 write-in ballots — including about 1,800 from Franklin voters — until Nov. 7 because of the overwhelming number received, Jerry Midgette, the county’s Board of Elections administrator, said.
