Princeton voters potentially returned two incumbent Princeton Public Schools Board of Education members to the school board and chose a newcomer to fill a third empty seat on the board.

Incumbents Betsy Baglio and Brian McDonald are leading in their re-election bids in the Nov. 2 General Election, and could be joined by newcomer Mara Franceschi in a four-way race to fill three seats on the school board.

McDonald was the top vote-getter with 2,369 votes, followed by Baglio, who earned 2,215 votes. Franceschi edged out the fourth candidate, Jeffrey Zhi Yang Liao, picking up 2,157 votes to his 2,106 votes, as of press time on Nov. 3.

The election results are unofficial until the votes have been certified by Mercer County.

If the final tallies do not differ, Baglio, Franceschi and McDonald will be sworn into office when the school board reorganizes in January 2022.
