Duval County voters on Tuesday turned out the only incumbent running in four School Board districts.
Only two of the four seats on the primary ballot were decided Tuesday, with the others two to be settled with runoffs in November.
Cheryl Grymes defeated Martha Barrett, who was running four her fourth term representing District 1, which represents Arlington and part of the Southside. Grymes, who served on the board from 1992 to 2000, won the seat by a 12 percent margin.
Retired educator Constance Hall received 60 percent of the vote to easily win a three-way race for District 5, which covers Northwest Jacksonville and the near Westside, earning
Former City Councilwoman Suzanne Jenkins and Ashley Smith Juarez, director of a education foundation, received the most votes in the four-candidate race for District 3 -- covering San Marco, Lakewood and San Jose and the rest of the Southside. With neither candidate breaking 50 percent, the voters will pick between them in November.
And it's no surprise there will be a runoff in the seven-way race for District 7 seat that covers J. Turner Butler Boulevard south to the county line and from Lakewood to Mandarin. Jason Fischer received 28 percent of the vote and
Jon Heymann got 25 percent. The two men will face each other again in the General Election.
In other Duval County races on the ballot, former School Board member Brenda Priestly Jackson defeated Bill Hodges to win the Democratic nomination for Clerk of Courts and will face Republican Ronnie Fussell and two independent candidates in November.
Michelle Kalil got the most votes in the race for Duval County Judge, but with only 41, she'll face Rhonda Peoples-Waters in a runoff in November.
