Farrington, Oden win seats on Nashua's Board of Education
Challengers George Farrington and Dotty Oden won two of the four open seats in this year's race. Voters also returned incumbents Sandra Ziehm and David Murotake to the board. Dennis Ryder, who was seeking a second term, and Thomas Vaughan who was running for a third term, came in fifth and sixth.
Oden, who also served a term on the board during the 1990s before returning to her career as an elementary school teacher, came in third with 3,866 votes and David Murotake won a second term with 3,302 votes.
And more than once, Ziehm encouraged voters to cast a vote for Oden. Both women focused on the needs of kids, classrooms and teachers during the campaign.
Ziehm spoke often about the "magic of the classroom" and the need to channel more resources such as paraprofessionals and reading specialists to elementary school classrooms where, she believes, schools have the chance to make some of their greatest gains.
