Jennifer Zung is one for one.
The Alta resident is the newest member of the Teton County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees, garnering the third-highest total with 6,388 votes, according to preliminary unofficial results. It was the first race she has ever run, and she credited her success to a team of volunteers who helped her create an online presence, send out mailers and talk to voters.
“We think that it was a combination of everything,” she said of her win.
Five candidates ran for four school board spots. Three incumbents were on the ballot, and all retained their seats.
Kate Mead, who was running for her fourth term, received the most votes, with 8,209 (26%), and Chair Betsy Carlin was second at 7,230 (22%). Incumbent Treasurer Bill Scarlett came in fourth, tallying 5,928 votes (18%).
