(UPDATED 9:40 p.m.) Newcomer Martha Stauffer Murray has ousted incumbent Tracy Shoemo for a spot on the Sandusky school board, according to unofficial election results. Incumbents Jeff Krabill and King Baer have managed to keep their spots.   

The city's voters strongly favored Murray, who was the top vote-getter among the six candidates vying for three spots on the board. 

The gap between Baer and fourth-place finisher Tracy Shoemo was narrow indeed, but not narrow enough to warrant an automatic recount.    

Here's the rundown from the 15,836 ballots cast in the school board race:

Martha Stauffer Murray: 3,569

Jeff Krabill: 3,146

King Baer: 3,097

Tracy Shoemo: 2,963

Racquel Pace: 1,725

Darwitt Garrett: 1,336

Congratulations to the winners of  available seats! 

Each of these ladies and gentlemen make tremendous effort to bring focus to our school system.  To the ones who were not victorious acquiring a position on the school board,  I still look forward to working with you and seeing you advocate in the interest of our young community!  Some, such as Tracy Shoemo, make an extraordinarily significant impact on supporting the needs, subjective and objective, of our youth.  I am proud to know you represent this city.

It is very unfortunate that Rev. Shoemo was not re-elected. I wish that more people in his age group were as energetic and concerned about our community.

Mrs. Murray will certainly have a lot of conversations with the superintendent. I worked at a facilty for which she was a board member. She asked questions to the point of distraction, and suggested impractical "improvements."

I really think that Rev. Shoemo and Ms. Pace would have been better choices. I think that they are more grounded in reality.
