. . . It must be true! From the SFBG politics blog tonight:
With the vast majority of the absentees now counted, it’s safe to call the school board election. Norman Yee was easily re-elected; Sandy Fewer is in second. Third place appears to be incumbent Jill Wynns, with Rachel Norton just a bit behind her. Those will be the four people elected.
Today’s updated election results do indeed show Jill Wynns and I holding steady in third and fourth place, respectively. Elections says there are about 20,000 absentees left to count, and another 16,000 provisional ballots. So while it’s not inconceivable that Barbara Lopez or Jaynry Mak could still come from behind and win a seat, I am starting to breathe a bit easier.
