Also on the ballot Tuesday was the 3rd District seat on the school board.

Kenya Gibson, an advocate of public education, won the seat by 46 percent of the vote.

“Together we’ve affirmed we believe in the power of grassroots movements, and we’ve shown that teachers and parents — united — have a powerful voice in the face of the status quo,” Gibson wrote on her professional Facebook page.
