Three newcomers, plus incumbent win Fulton County school board races



With four Fulton County school board races on the ballot, the lone incumbent seeking reelection retained her seat.

Board Vice-President Kimberly Dove defeated challenger LaTonya Martin Rogers to hold onto her District 6 spot. The district includes parts of College Park, East Point, South Fulton and Union City.

Tuesday’s election also ushers in three new faces to the school board. Kristin McCabe, Michelle Morancie and Lillie Pozatek won seats that had been held by long-running board members who decided not to run.

It took until 5:02 p.m. Wednesday for Fulton County to post complete, though still unofficial, election results.

For the District 2 seat, Pozatek edged out Brittany Griffin to represent areas in Alpharetta and Milton.

McCabe defeated Kimberly Ware in the District 5 race, which includes areas in Johns Creek and Alpharetta.

The tightest race was in District 7, where Morancie narrowly beat Phil Chen. That seat represents Sandy Springs and portions of Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Roswell.

The newly elected board members will take office in January.
