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 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[6]
