With four seats open in the in April 9 election, newcomers Terry Shroyer and Josh Arduini were elected along with incumbents John Jacobs and Pam Tourtillott. Each has a 4-year term.

They join Tom Lemoine, Jim Schielein and Kevin Sward, whose terms expire in 2015.

Jacobs, who was appointed to the board 4 months ago, received the most votes.
