ANwSU officials certify Childers as seat winner

ADDISON — Addison town and Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials last week confirmed that write-in candidate Laurie Childers did in fact win enough votes on Town Meeting Day to become the town’s representative on the Vergennes Union High School board.
Childers, a former Addison Central School board member, polled 20 write-in votes. Addison Town Clerk Marilla Webb confirmed late last week that was enough to put Childers over the legal 1 percent threshold required of a write-in candidate to win office.
On the night of town meeting, Addison officials had believed Childers’ total was not sufficient to earn the seat on the VUHS board.
That seat was vacant for much of last summer until ACS director Michele Kelly agreed to be appointed to the post through Town Meeting Day, when she stepped down.
CORRECTION: Due to a typographical error, Addison’s vote count for the VUHS budget was incorrectly reported in our March 6 story on the defeat of that spending proposal. In Addison, 152 residents voted for the proposed $9.73 million VUHS budget, and 171 against. We incorrectly reported it was 52 residents.
