Jason Winter will be the new Ripon Unified school board member.
He’ll take over Chad Huskey’s Trustee Area 1 post, joining Christopher ‘Kit’ Oase, who was easily re-elected to his Trustee Area 3 seat in the Nov. 8 election.
The San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters office certified the results, a few days ahead of the 30-day deadline and in time to be presented next week before the Board of Supervisors.
Winter defeated Joe Franscella for Trustee Area 1, 848-522, while Oase (1,053) was a runaway winner over Tiffany Treece (296) and Timothy O. Mathews (235).
