Coverage of the Madison school board elections in 2007
Candidates respond to weekly Take Home Tests

While Madison's mayoral and aldermanic elections may have grabbed the most attention, the races for Madison's school board could the most far-reaching consequences for the city and its families.

Though two new faces were added to the board after the polls closed on Apr. 3, the general composition of the body remained static, with the two major factions each losing and gaining a member.

Beth Moss defeated Rick Thomas for Seat 3 (each having moved past the Feb. 20 primary election which also included Pam Cross-Leone as a candidate). Incumbent Johnny Winston, Jr. successfully defended his seat (and position as board president) to a challenge from Tom Brew for Seat 4.
