Babur Lateef and Ann Wheeler

Democratic-endorsed candidates nearly swept the Prince William County School Board in Tuesday's elections, unseating Willie Deutsch in the Coles District and winning the Brentsville District seat. 

Only the Gainesville District seat was won by a Republican-endorsed candidate. Jen Wall beat Patricia Kuntz, who was endorsed by Democrats, by 54 to 45 percent, according to still unofficial election results.

Board Chairman Dr. Babur Lateef was re-elected chairman of the school board, garnering about 51 percent of the vote in a rematch with Alyson Satterwhite, who fetched about 42 percent.

In the Brentsville District, Adele Jackson won with 51 percent of the vote compared to Brann's 48.69 percent.

In the Coles District, Lisa Zargarpur unseated Deutsch in a three-way race, with Zargarpur winning 42.53 percent of the vote, Deutsch winning 36.84 percent and Jacqueline Gaston winning 20.51 percent.

In the Neabsco District, Diane Raulston was re-elected with 77 percent of the vote compared to Joseph George's 22.79 percent.

In the Occoquan District, Lillie Jessie was re-elected with 55 percent of the vote compared to Karen Boyd's 44.92 percent.

School Board members Justin Wilk (Potomac) and Loree Williams (Woodbridge) were unopposed.
