It all came down to a random draw to determine who would win the tie to serve a six-year term on the Godfrey Lee Board of Education.
The winner: Robert Baker Jr., who will serve his second term. He drew a slip from a box held by Kent County Clerk Mary Hollinrake that said “Elected.” Challenger Josephine Coleman pulled the “Not Elected” slip.
Baker, whose daughter attends Lee High School, is a service technician for Pepsi Co.
The Wyoming Board of Canvassers certified the tie vote from the Nov. 4 election, for which Baker and Josephine Coleman each received 296 votes.
Also elected from among six candidates were newcomer David Blok and incumbent Tammy Shafer.
