After combining forces to create a campaign flier, the candidates running on a vocal conservative platform swept the Germantown School Board elections Tuesday night. Sarah Larson continued to be unstoppable at the polls after defeating Lisa Laskowski for Seat 1 in the primary in what turned out to be an unusually contentious race. Michael Loth defeated Gregory Anderson for Seat 6 and Thomas Barney beat incumbent Thomas Bowe for Seat 7.
Election results remain unofficial until they are certified by the Board of Canvassers, which meets Wednesday, after NOW's press deadline. Larson and Loth will hold three-year terms. Barney will serve a one-year term.
Larson won with 3,913 votes that include votes from Germantown, the village of Richfield and Colgate. Laskowski received 2,016 votes. Loth beat Anderson with 3,490 votes compared with 2,017. Barney received 3,284 votes and Bowe 2,199 votes.
A small portion of the town of Polk is also in the Germantown School District, but results have not been posted on the Washington County website as of 11 p.m.
Board members receive $4,000 a year.
