Voters selected new members for Utah school boards across the state Tuesday, including races along the Wasatch Front involving some of the state's largest school districts.
The Salt Lake City School District featured a school board election rematch from eight years ago, with incumbent Alama Uluave running against Michael Clara for a seat. In 2004, Uluave beat Clara by a single vote, earning him a spot representing the city's west-side neighborhoods. But this year, the tables turned, and Clara won the election in District 2, according to unofficial results.
Elsewhere in the Salt Lake City race, incumbent Amanda Thorderson of Rose Park and Fairpark activist Tiffany Sandberg were neck and neck for a seat in District 1 in a race too close to call early Wednesday morning. In newly realigned District 5, board Vice President Heather Bennett won another term against Glendale's Billy Palmer. President Kristi Swett retained her seat from District 7, running unchallenged.
