Gregory Greenleaf and William “Bart” Beattie won seats on the school board in a three-way race on Saturday, March 11.

Greenleaf received 697 votes, Beattie 629, and Eric Lusk 253. Margaret “Greta” Warren garnered 61 votes. Warren was on the ballot, but she withdrew from the race and backed Beattie’s write-in campaign.

Lusk and Warren currently serve on the Maine School Administrative District 75 Board of Directors. They will continue to do so until late June, when Greenleaf and Beattie will take the seats. The new members will serve three-year terms.

Harpswell has four of the 14 seats on the MSAD 75 board. The district also includes Topsham, Bowdoin and Bowdoinham.

Greenleaf, of Cundy’s Harbor, teaches English at Greely High School in Cumberland, which is not in MSAD 75. He is a former chair of the Harpswell Community School Parent-Teacher Organization and the Harpswell Democratic Committee. (Editor’s note: Greenleaf writes a humor column for the Harpswell Anchor.)

Beattie, of Orr’s Island, is a social worker and an executive for an addiction treatment provider. A parent of four children who attended MSAD 75 schools, he said he wants to help board members work together and support the needs of students and teachers.

Lusk, of Harpswell Neck, is a financial adviser. He chairs the Harpswell Republican Committee and volunteers with Harpswell Neck Fire and Rescue.

Elsewhere on the ballot, Select Board member Kevin Johnson received 809 votes in an unopposed bid for a fourth three-year term. A member of one of Harpswell’s oldest families, the retired builder chairs the Select Board and the town’s Affordable Housing Working Group.
