One Glendive Unified School Board member successfully defended her seat in a landslide and two of the four candidates for the Dawson Community College board far outpaced the others in Tuesday’s school elections.

Voters also approved an additional $87,099 mill levy for the Glendive Elementary District by a vote of 753-507.

GUSB incumbent Jeanne Seifert won another three-year term in going away fashion over challenger Steve Zorn, who lost his seat on the board in last year’s election. Seifert cruised to an easy win by a vote of 947-288.

The DCC Board of Trustees had two vacancies following the retirement of incumbents Jim Squires and Deb Linn. Four candidates competed for the positions, and two pulled well away from the others to claim them.

Michael Wilondek garnered the most votes amongst the DCC candidates with 875. Becky Hicks came in second with 838. As such, Wilondek and Hicks will each serve a three-year term on the board. 

Bruce Bainbridge and Jamie Rathbun-Iwen finished third and fourth, respectively. Bainbridge received 504 votes and Rathbun-Iwen 420.

All results are unofficial until the votes are canvassed by the GUSB and the DCC Board of Trustees.
