The Tigard-Tualatin School District saw the election of a trio of new board members on May 18. 

In a three-way race for the Position 1 seat, David Jaimes came out on top with 4,892 votes, or 41.71 percent of the total. He defeated Donna Kreitzberg (3,499 votes, 29.83 percent) and Amy Zuckerman (3,300 votes, 28.14 percent). 

Tristan Kira Irvin, meanwhile, was elected to the Position 3 seat with 6,087 votes, or 53.66 percent, defeating Octavio Gonzalez, who garnered 5,216 votes, or 45.98 percent. 

Finally, Marvin Lynn won election to the Position 5 seat, taking 96.74 percent of the vote (8,468) after running unopposed. 

The same dynamic played out in the races for three seats on the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue District’s Board of Directors, where Bob Wyffels, Clark Balfour and Gordon Hovies all were elected after running without an opponent.
