Tim McGinty, a
longtime educator and administrator with the Duneland Schools, is back in
the saddle again.
general election, McGinty beat retired assistant superintendent Monte
Moffett in the race for the at-large seat on the Duneland School Board,
taking 63.76 percent of the vote: 11,491 votes to Moffett’s 6,532.
“I’m excited to be
part of the Duneland team again,” McGinty told the Chesterton Tribune
this morning. “Right now, with the current School Board and Administration,
we can continue to support the people in the trenches to make a difference
for the kids.”
“I would like to
congratulate Tim and his team for his victory,” Moffett said. “I wish him
and the Duneland Schools nothing but the best as they move forward during
these challenging times. I want to thank all the people who voted and
supported me through this election, especially my campaign manager, Sid
Augustyn. Their commitment, dedication, and hard work were an inspiration
throughout the entire campaign. Onward Trojans!”
Meanwhile, in an
uncontested race, Tom Schnabel won the Jackson Township seat on the Duneland
School Board in his own right, after being appointed to the board early this
year to succeed Kristin Kroeger, who resigned.
