The lingering crowd at the Dover Area School Board meeting cheered and clapped when Dover science teacher Rob Eshbach spread the word that Bryan Rehm won a seat on the school board.
Someone called Eshbach on a cell phone to say Rehm received 373 votes to James Cashman's 280 during Tuesday's special election in Dover Township. When combined with totals from other precincts recorded during the Nov. 8 election, Rehm's total was 2,591 to Cashman's 2,523.
Although the margin he won by is somewhat disturbingly small, it is still a win and ensures that Dover is well and truly over. Mind you, if Kansas is anything to go by if nobody pays attention the kooks will be back in power, ready to hold kids education hostage again for their mistaken beliefs before anyone realises its too late.
