Election Day proved to be a good one for local incumbent school board and city council members as many retained their seats.

In the Claremont Unified School District race for three open seats, incumbent Steve Llanusa (1,904) won his re-election bid. Challengers Nancy Treser-Osgood (2,735 votes) and David Nemer (2,018) also were elected to the board.

In a message to his Facebook followers Wednesday morning, Llanusa said that “I am so grateful for the trust and support of me and my ideas for the school board for this upcoming term.”

Osgood and Nemer were excited about the opportunity to serve the school district.

“I am deeply grateful to the Claremont community for their resounding support of my school board candidacy,” Osgood said in an email on Wednesday. “As the only candidate to be endorsed by the faculty, staff, and Claremont Courier, I am confident that we will have a wonderful collaboration implementing the Common Core curriculum and developing a Local Control Funding accountability plan. That combination presents us with the most profound shift in public education in 40 years, and we are uniquely poised for success in Claremont. I look forward to working alongside Dave Nemer, Steven Llanusa, Hilary LaConte and Sam Mowbray to enhance the educational excellence within our district.”

Nemer said he was happy with the support he received.
