PARKLAND, Fla. – Lori Alhadeff, whose 14-year-old daughter, Alyssa, was killed in the Parkland school shooting, has won a seat on the Broward County School Board in a race that was dominated by the mass shooting.

The article goes on to state the following:

Many of the candidates have argued the school district should have done more to prevent the shooting, noting that officials missed numerous warnings signs about Cruz.

With five of the nine seats up for grabs, the vote could create a new majority on the board and seal the fate of embattled Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runice.

Running in an open seat vacated by Abby Freedman, Alhadeff defeated Michael Joseph Kottler and Tennille Doe-Decoste, whose son’s best friend Joaquin Oliver, was killed. District 4 represents Parkland.

School board Chairwoman Nora Rupert held off challenges from Hubert St. Clair and Mike Olbel in District 7, which includes Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach and Coconut Creek.

Former Stoneman Douglas teacher Richard Mendelson lost to incumbent board member Laurie Levinson in District 6, which includes Weston, Cooper City, and Davie.

Ryan Petty, another parent of a Parkland victim, and 19-year-old Elijah Manley are running for an at-large seat held by Donna Korn.

Incumbent Ann Murray, Natalia Garceau, Veronica Newmeyer and Jim Silvernale are vying for the District 1 seat, which covers Hollywood, Hallandale Beach and Dania Beach.
