Fiorentino claims victory



HeatherfWith just two precincts not reporting, Pasco superintendent Heather Fiorentino claimed reelection to another four-year term.

"It's the hard work of all the employees that has allowed me the successes I've had. I feel very honored that the voters would put me back in office to lead," she said.

She acknowledged the split between the administration and employees association over the election, and said the time has come to mend fences. "I look forward to, now that this race is over, that we get back together as a single team to move forward," Fiorentino said.

Donaldson conceded the race from his party, saying he had a "moral victory" by pulling 47 percent of the vote. He said he would continue to work for the improvement of the school district, and did not rule out another bid for superintendent in four years.
