Tim McGinty, a longtime educator and administrator with the Duneland Schools, is back in the saddle again.

In Tuesday’s 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.
