HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Incumbents Eric Aiken, Margaret Erickson and Amy Hassa held the lead for three-year terms on the Hamilton Township Board of Education after the polls closed Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Aiken, the current board president, was the leading vote-getter with 4,318 votes. Erickson and Hassa garnered 4,009 and 3,145, respectively, while newcomer Warren “Jerry” Nelson tallied 3,131 votes.
Current board member James Higbee led newcomer Denise Alianell 2,831 to 2,719 for a one-year unexpired term.
The final outcomes remain in doubt, however, as there were 1,037 absentee ballots and an undetermined number of provisional ballots remaining to be counted.
Kristina Carr garnered 5,294 votes for an uncontested seat to represent Hamilton Township on the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School Board of Education.
