What was at stake?

All seven seats on the School Committee were up for re-election in 2013. Wards 3, 5 and 7 incumbents Anthony Donegan, William Carpenter and Timothy J. Sullivan did not file for re-election. Wards 1, 4 and 6 incumbents Thomas J. Minichiello, Jr., Patricia A. Joyce and Michael P. Healy ran unopposed to retain their seats. Andrew Robinson was the only incumbent who faced a challenger, Krystel Love. If Robinson had not managed to retain his seat, a majority of the board would have been fresh faces following this election.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]
