Kennedy Nabs Another PPS Board Term, Udin And Edwards Win Seats

May 16, 2017

Sala Udin, Veronica Edwards and Terry Kennedy won seats on the Pittsburgh Public Schools boards Tuesday night, in the only contested board races.

Kennedy, the incumbent District 5 representative, garnered nearly twice as many votes as opponent Ghadah Makoshi.

In District 3, former city councilman Udin beat out opponent James Myers, a Schenley High School grad and outreach coordinator for the Pittsburgh Green Innovators.

And Edwards narrowly defeated incumbent Carolyn Klug for the District 9 seat.

District 7 incumbent Cynthia Falls originally faced opponent Conrad Burns, but Burns dropped out of the race to attend law school. His name still appeared on the ballot because he accepted his law school offer after the date to withdraw. He got 26 percent of the vote.
