"...On the Austin ISD Board of Trustees, the vacant At Large Place 9 will be filled by Singh, who finished second to Carmen Tilton in November but triumphed this round with 60% in a surprisingly hard-fought and expensive contest.

Education Austin president Ken Zarifis explained Tuesday that the union "checked the wrong box" on its report, and that the second $10,000 was an in-kind donation, which the board chose (as it commonly does) to "give more insight into how the money was used." Singh's opponent Carmen Tilton said she had "serious concerns" about the complaint: "I hope Arati Singh can get her story straight, because the conflicting tales from her and the PAC in question aren't passing the smell test."......"
