Avon Grove School Board Election Results 2019

May 21, 2019


May 21st was a very important election for the Avon Grove School Board Directors.  As background, there are 9 members of the Avon Grove School Board.  Five of the 9 are up for re-election in 2019.  There are 3 regions in the AG School District, with 3 school directors in each region.  This update will focus on the results of the Republican voters since several candidates (i.e. Dorothy Linn, Jeffrey Billig, Tracy Lisi, Bonnie Wolff and Herman Engel filed as both a Democrat and a Republican.  Charles Beatty, Mark Stewart, Carmela Ciliberti, and Christina Fanning filed as Republicans.

The results of the Avon Grove School Board Directors races are as follows. The names of the candidates that are bolded are the winners of the Republican primary process. 

Avon Grove School District Region I includes Franklin Township (Precinct 240) and London Britain Township (Precinct 330). 

  • Charles Beatty*        478 Republican votes (will be on the November ballot)
  • Dorothy Linn              311 Republican votes

Note: Dorothy Linn also received 510 Democratic votes so Dorothy Linn will also appear on the ballot in November.  Voters will be asked to select 1 candidate in Region I November.

 Avon Grove School District Region II includes New London Township (Precinct 395), Penn Township (Precinct 410), and West Grove (Precinct 710)

  • Mark Stewart*            570 Republican votes (will be on the November ballot)
  • Carmela Ciliberti        566 Republican votes
  • Jeffrey Billig                 567 Republican votes
  • Tracy Lisi                      575 Republican votes (will be on the November ballot)

Note: Jeffrey Billig also received 675 Democratic votes and Tracy Lisi received 705 Democratic votes.  Thus Jeffrey Billig will also appear on the ballot in November. Voters will be asked to select 2 out of the 3 candidates in Region II in November.

Avon Grove School District Region III includes London Grove Township South (Precinct 345),  London Grove Township Chatham (Precinct 340), West Grove (Precinct 715), and Avondale (Precinct 10)

  • Christina Fanning*    384 Republican votes (will be on the November ballot)
  • Bonnie Wolff              390 Republican votes (will be on the November ballot)
  • Herman Engel            378 Republican votes

Note: Herman Engel also received 475 Democratic votes and Bonnie Wolff received 488 Democratic votes.  Thus Herman Engel will also appear on the ballot in November.  Voters will be asked to select 2 out of the 3 candidates in Region III in November.

 As you can see, there is one candidate (see the candidate with an asterisk) in each region who is for a more reasoned approach to allocating the precious resources of the school district and ensuring that teachers have the programs and supplies they need for our students to be successful.  If 2 out of these 3 candidates are elected in November, the direction and ways of working of the current school board may be able to be changed to for the better.
