TWINSBURG — The result of a three-way race Nov. 5 for two open Twinsburg Board of Education seats means a new face on the school board.
According to the final but unofficial results from the Summit County Board of Elections office, challenger Adrienne Gordon received the most votes, with 3,107 votes, or 36.92 percent of the vote. Incumbent Board member Mark H. Curtis received 2,739 votes, or 32.55 percent of the vote, and will return to his seat in January. Incumbent Board member Matt Cellura lost his seat; he received 2,569 votes, or 30.53 percent of the vote.
Gordon, who owns a management consulting firm says she brings "a fresh set of eyes and two decades of expertise in communication, strategy planning, goal setting, and financial management" to the position.
She said she is a long-time advocate for improvements in education for "disability, gifted, STEM and Arts, and data privacy locally, at the state level, and at the federal level," and claims many local families count on her to answer questions regarding special education, CCP, credit flex, and many other programs."
School board terms begin Jan. 1.
