Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - Local News - Early Returns City Council District 9I've said that School Board Members should NOT be eligible for the ballot in other races while on the board and for five years following their board tenure. I guess someone heard that wish.

Patrick Dowd didn't do so well either.
Nor did Theresa Colaizzi.
All in all, I think that the school board behavior isn't much better than it was in the past. It is still rocky, to say the least.
The vote total for Stephanie Tecza was 74 and Heather Arnet got 27. That's a landslide. But even more was the 66 to 17 score that crushed a sitting school board member, Dan Romaniello. Way to go Sherry Hazuda, whoever you may be.
