For second straight election, voters call for big changes in Unionville school board
By Mike McGann, Editor, UnionvilleTimes.com
It looks like for the second straight election the Unionville-Chadds Ford Board of Education will see wholesale changes — with newcomers Victor DuPuis, Kathleen Meehan Do and former director Gregg Lindner winning election, Tuesday, based on unofficial election results from Chester and Delaware counties.
Incumbent Eileen Bushelow won easy reelection running unopposed.
The board of nine will have three new members as of next month.
Frank Murphy was the lone incumbent returned to his seat, with board president Timotha Trigg — who has served two terms on the board — losing by 44 votes in Region C to Lindner — who served briefly on the board. Both Lindner and DuPuis lost close elections in 2009 for board seats.
In Region A (East Marlborough and West Marlborough), DuPuis held off Rob MacPherson 820 to 760.

In a highly visible and contentious Region C (Chadds Ford and Pennsbury) race, Do and Lindner edged Trigg and Jones, while Murphy the lone candidate running on both the Democratic and Republican lines ended up as the top vote getter.

In Region B (Newlin, Birmingham and Pocopson) Bushelow ran unopposed and won, getting 1,416 votes. There were just 20 write-in votes.
