Late Breaking School Board Update

This just in from reporter Ethan Stewart:

After just speaking with Santa Barbara School Board Candidate Ed Heron, it seems that the third and final school board seat may not be decided until Thursday or perhaps later.

With less than 250 votes separating Heron and current 4th place finisher Charlotte Ware, it seems that the final word on the hotly contested race will be decided by provisional and late submitted absentee ballots.

"Given the field of great candidates" explained Heron, "It is only natural that we are so close. I guess we are just going to have to wait for a few more days."

It is unknown at this time how many ballots remained uncounted.
