An incumbent Marysville school board member and a former Marysville City Council member were still behind in election returns Wednesday night.

Also, in Arlington, the mayor’s race remains extremely close, with incumbent Barb Tolbert expanding her lead to 34 votes after leading by 27 Election Night over challenger Don Vanney Jr.

Paul Galovin was leading Mariana Maksimos 4,069 to 3,457, or 54 percent to 46 percent, in the Marysville school board race, and Kelly Richards was ahead of Jeff Siebert 3,431 to 3,205, or 51 percent to 48 percent, in the council race.

Some incumbents were struggling here.

Tolbert’s lead is just 50.5 percent to 49 percent.

On the City Council, Sue Weiss is losing badly to Michele Blythe 1,126 to 905, or 55 percent to 44 percent.

For school board, Sue’s husband, director Jim Weiss, was doing better against Sheri Kelly, ahead 1,992 to 1,776, or 53 percent to 47 percent.

Proposition 1, an advisory vote to ban fireworks, was leading 1,292 to 987, or 57 percent to 43 percent. With North County Regional Fire Authority Proposition 1, the levy was failing 1,747 to 1,793, or 49 percent in favor and 51 percent against. However the measure was behind by 80 votes Election Night and now trails by 46. Only 50 percent is needed for passage.

And for fire commissioner, Greg Oakes is way in front of Jeff Sinker 2,148 to 1,021, or 67 percent to 32 percent.
