BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (AP) - A school board member who recently died has been re-elected in a northern New Jersey town.

Kent Weisert was among three incumbents who were unopposed for three seats on the Bloomfield Board of Education in Tuesday’s election. Weisert received 1,308 votes, finishing third in the race.

Weisert died at his home on Oct. 21, but remained on the ballot. The lifelong Bloomfield resident was a lawyer who had served one term on the board.

District officials say Weisert’s replacement will either be selected by the school board or appointed by the Essex County schools superintendent.
