POINT PLEASANT BEACH — Challenger Scott Lee emerged victorious in the Point Pleasant Beach Board of Education election, preventing incumbent Christopher Mullins from being elected to his first full term on the board.
Mr. Lee, running under the ‘Back to Basics’ slogan, received 705 votes to Mr. Mullins’ 427. Eighteen votes went to write-ins.
There are five districts that vote in the Point Pleasant Beach Board of Education election: the four districts of Point Pleasant Beach proper, as well as the sole district of Mantoloking, which does not have its own board of education.
“I’m very humbled and excited,” Mr. Lee told The Ocean Star on Tuesday night.
“I appreciate everyone’s votes and confidence, and I’m looking forward to serving the parents and the students and the teachers of Point Pleasant Beach.”
