Warner, Dukes, Johnson win board seats

Clarence Dukes, a conservative, and incum-
bents Henry Johnson and Cecil Warner won
three-year terms on the city school board in yes-
terday's election.
In an election marked by an expected low
turnout of about 30 per cent of all eligible voters,
Human Rights Party (HRP) candidate Sonia
Yaco, a 15 year old student at Tappan Junior
High School, garnered a surprising 1,240 write-in
Yaco was prohibited from appearing on the
ballot because state law, requires candidates to
be over 18 years old.
According to an HRP statement released
last night, "The write-in votes for Yaco repre-
sent the most phenomenal support for a candi-
date not on the ballot in Ann Arbor history."
HRP candidates Curtis Holt and Gretchen
Groth Wilson finished last in the contest, in
which 10 candidates competed for three open

Johnson, recently'appointed vice president for
student services, commented last night on the
effect the election will have on the formerly 5-4
conservative-liberal split on the nine-person
"I'm realistic enough to know that the board
composition is now a six to three conservative
majority. This makes the job more difficult,"
he said.
Holt and Wilson scored clear victories in t=e
heavily student-populated precincts- of the First
and Second Wards. According to Johnson the
votes won by HRP "probably hurt significantly"
the candidacy of Ronald Bishop and Nancy
Brussolo, two liberal candidates.
Warner won with 7,873 votes. Johnson came
in second with 7,538 votes and Dukes garnered
6,750 votes.
M.Terry Martin finished fourth with 6,484
