Thomas wins Lake Forest School Board seat

FELTON – Phillip Thomas, a Felton Police Officer, won the at-large seat on the Lake Forest School Board in today’s election, according to the Department of Election’s unofficial tallies.

Mr. Thomas brought in 51.31 percent of the votes in the election today against Stephanie Justiniano Johnson and Austin Auen who brought in 220 and 59 votes respectively. Mr. Thomas took home 294 votes.

He will be replacing John A. Schulties who has served on the board since 2000.

The new board member told fellow candidates and voters last week during a forum held in the district’s Central Business Office that he had no sales pitch; he’s in it for the kids.

“This isn’t a personal agenda. I put my name in the hat to see if I can make a difference,” the Lake Forest High School graduate said.
