Springfield Board Coin Flip 26 Nov 12

One of the open seats on the Springfield School Board was filled with the flip of a coin recently. Doug Robertson and Mandy Rasset each received a total of 712 votes on Election Day, and a recount at the Brown County Auditor’s Office last week confirmed the tie. The seat was decided with a coin flip, with Rasset calling “Heads” and the coin coming up tails, giving the seat to Robertson. He has served as a special education teacher and coach at Springfield Public Schools for the past 35 years.
