With less than a week remaining until results are certified, Jeanne Broberg’s lead over Andrew Blumenfeld has shrunk to two votes in the La Cañada Unified school board race, according to the latest tally posted Wednesday by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder.
Broberg now has 1,804 votes, or 27.08%, to Blumenfeld’s 1,802 votes, or 27.05%. The three-term incumbent and the Princeton University student are locked in a near tie for the second of two seats up for grabs from the Nov. 8 election. The first seat will go to Ellen Multari, who leads the pack with 2,085 votes, or 31.3%.
A fourth candidate, Ernest Koeppen, currently has 970 votes, or 14.56%.
The registrar-recorder will post a new update Friday afternoon before releasing the final vote count Monday. Election results then go to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for certification.
Broberg has said that she is eager to return for a fourth term and get to work on likely mid-year cuts to the La Cañada Unified budget.
