Kennebunk voters resoundingly rejected an effort to recall a member of the school board.

Only about 500 voters favored recalling Tim Stentiford, while more than 1,700 voted against it.

It comes after months of tense debate about Stentiford’s role in recent teacher losses and increased spending.

Stentiford does not plan to seek reelection after his term ends in June.
