(May 9, 2007) Andy Fanta and Floyd Brumfield have both won re-election, each to another 4-year term to the Ypsilanti School Board. The race was not much in question as there were just two candidates for two positions. Brumfield garnered 846 votes and Fanta 798. According to the Washtenaw County Clerk there were 36 write-in votes cast. Write-in votes are not counted unless a write-in candidate publicly declares before the election.

Ypsilanti School officials were also closely watching the Lincoln Consolidated School election. Lincoln had a school millage proposal before voters. Proposal B passed 919 to 786 with nearly 54% voting in favor. A second millage, Proposal C, which asked for a 0.25 mill increase in taxes for recreation and senior services narrowly failed. The vote difference was just 20 votes, 843 to 863, with the no vote getting 50.59% of the vote.

Ypsilanti is planning to put a school millage before the voters in August and officials were watching the Lincoln election to gauge voters opinions towards a school millage.
