Election day is May 4.

With all Travis County voting precincts reporting, candidate Brian Allen won the election for Place 5 on the Pflugerville ISD Board of Trustees.

“I’m super excited to get an opportunity to collaborate with the other members of the board and I look forward to serving the community,” Allen told Community Impact Newspaper on May 4.

After jumping out to an early lead through early voting results, Allen held onto the positions throughout election day.

Allen replaces Carol Fletcher—the longest serving trustee on the PfISD dais. Fletcher announced in April that she was not seeking re-election after serving 18 years as a PfISD trustee.

Allen collected 52.03% of the vote, totaling 924 votes.

Challengers Charlie Torres and April Griffin collected 35.3% and 12.67% of the vote, respectively.

Results are unofficial until canvassed.
