Stevens and Garcia Win KUSB Seat
Rebecca Stevens and Tony Garcia will be taking their positions on the Kenosha Unified School Board for three year terms after finishing the race one and two respectively.
Tony Garcia will replace board member Kyle Flood, who opted to step down at the end of his term.
Stevens, 56, will return to the board for a fourth three-year term. She won 19,474 votes, nearly 7,000 ahead of the next-highest vote-getter.
“I’m extremely pleased and happy. I think it shows that people are listening to what we are doing to shore up the school system and work hard together to improve everything,” Stevens said.
Garcia, 58, a teacher in Zion, Ill., ran for the board last year, losing that election by 90 votes. In this round, he won with 12,584 votes.
“I am very excited to be part of the education of our students here in KUSD. I just want to make sure that students here are getting the 21st century education they need,” he said. “I’m very excited that people supported me, and I want to give them my humble thanks.”
