Here’s who won seats on the Lu­cia Mar school board

The Tribune (SLO) - - Local - BY KAYTLYN LESLIE Kaytlyn Leslie: 805-781-7928, @kaytyleslie

Even though all the votes haven’t been counted yet, the race for Lu­cia Mar Uni­fied School District looks all but set.

The largest com­pe­ti­tion was to rep­re­sent Area 1, or Nipomo. There, four peo­ple were vy­ing for the two open spots — in­clud­ing the brand-new seat cre­ated this year for the grow­ing South County town.

As of Fri­day morn­ing, with 24,505 votes counted, in­cum­bent Chad Robert­son and Dawn Meek looked to have locked down those seats with 37.6 per­cent and 31.5 per­cent of the vote, re­spec­tively. Stacy Meko and Michael Sul­li­van trailed with 20.1 per­cent and 10.8 per­cent.

If the trend holds through the fi­nal tal­lies, Meek will be the first to hold the new Nipomo seat. Meek, 57, is a re­tired teacher.

In Area 3, which cov­ers Oceano, in­cum­bent Vern Dahl soundly de­feated chal­lenger An­drea Vergne with 64.7 per­cent of the vote.

Those num­bers are still sub­ject to change, of course, as an es­ti­mated 50,000 votes coun­ty­wide have yet to be tal­lied by the county Clerk-Recorder’s of­fice.
