Incumbent Robert A. Paliani, who campaigned on completing "unfinished business," lost his bid for re-election to the Mundelein High School District 120 board on Tuesday.
With all 32 precincts accounted for as well as early voting and mail-in ballots counted, unofficial results indicate that four newcomers will take spots on the board. Candidate Laura Mellon led the group with 2,496 votes. Tami Forman had 2,184 votes, followed by Patrick Browne with 2,145 votes and Paul Lohr with 2,071 votes.

Paliani lost with 1,946 votes.
Three incumbents -- Vicky Kennedy, Edwin Specht and Bryan Wilcox -- opted not to run, opening the board to new leadership.
The board has a solid history of operating smoothly and has been in the black for many years. In 2011, voters approved a $10 million spending plan that resulted in many campus improvements, among them the installment of artificial turf on the school's football field.
