Jennifer Storer and J. Jay McMullin were able to weather recent tumultous times for the Black Horse Pike Regional School District on Tuesday, winning new terms as district board members.

With Camden County reporting unofficial results from 38 of 40 districts, McMullin had received the most votes, with 8,911. Storer received 8,710 votes and Leary 7,780 to win the other two seats up for grabs in this year's election.

Black Horse Pike Regional School District was thrust into the national media spotlight in early October when Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk announced that three teachers and two administrators had been charged following his office's investigation into teacher-student sex at Triton Regional High School during the 2011-12 school year.

Triton is one of three schools in Black Horse Pike Regional School District. Highland and Timber Creek are the others.

It never ceases to amaze me the short term memory the voters of this area have, I guess everything is always forgiven, as are all the faults of the "local machine".

Nice result. Keeps Vizoco off the board. He already screwed my kids once with the bogus politically driven redistricting. I am glad he wont get the chance to do it again. At least for the next 3 years.

Great result for the kids and taxpayers, alike!
