The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics has certified the election of six members of the city school board following the Nov. 2 election.
Certification of a seventh apparent winner, in ward eight (far southeast Washington) was delayed because of a lawsuit filed against him by a campaign worker for one of his opponents.
None of the final, official tabulations changed the results or the relative standings of any of the candidates.
Following are the official tabulations, with winners in boldface type: At Large (Two Elected)(TABLE) Barbara Lett Simmons(COLUMN)22.814 Frank Shaffer-Corona(COLUMN)12.112 Stewart Rosenblatt(COLUMN)9.638 Afrodita Constantinidis(COLUMN)4.167 Write-ins(COLUMN)1.243 Ward 2(COLUMN) Alaire Rieffel(COLUMN)2.361 Alverta Munlyn(COLUMN)1.217 Write-ins(COLUMN)26 Ward 3(COLUMN) Carol Schwartz(COLUMN)5.452 Kenneth T.
