Incumbent Mehlville Board of Education Vice President Karl Frank Jr. was re-elected Tuesday to another three-year term on the school board along with newcomers Drew Frauenhoffer and Erin Weber.

Frauenhoffer was the leading votegetter with 3,585 votes, good for 18.30 percent overall. Weber received 3,444 votes, which amounted to 17.58 percent. Frank was elected with the third open slot on the school board with 3,434, or 17.53 percent.

Frank, Frauenhoffer and Weber will all serve three-year terms until 2011.

• David Bertelsen with 2,137 votes, or 10.91 percent.
