Voters chose school board members and considered school district operating levies, among other issues Tuesday. This file photo shows a voter picking up a sticker in 2020.

Candidates in three suburban school districts who hoped to take opposition to racial equity policies and steer their school boards in a new conservative direction came up well short Tuesday.

None of the seven board hopefuls running in multicandidate slates in Wayzata and White Bear Lake won.

In South Washington County, Eric Tessmer, a parent and police officer, was the lone candidate among four conservatives running on a "common sense" platform to capture a seat. The other three seats went to candidates endorsed by the local teachers union.
