Incumbent Jeanne Broberg has increased her razor-thin lead over 20-year-old challenger Andrew Blumenfeld to 14 votes in the La Cañada Unified School District race, according to numbers posted Friday by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder.
The pair are battling it out for one of two seats decided in Tuesday’s election. Ellen Multari appears to have secured one seat with 2,039 votes, or 31% of the vote. Broberg is running second with 1,764 votes, or about 27%, but Blumenfeld follows closely with 1,750 votes. The difference leaves Blumenfeld about 0.2% behind Broberg.
A fourth candidate, Ernest Koeppen, currently has 944 votes, slightly less than 15% of the vote.
County officials will continue to count provisional and mail-in ballots through Nov. 21, at which time the final tallies will go to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for certification.
When preliminary results were posted early Wednesday morning, Blumenfeld trailed Broberg by just a dozen votes.
