Jesse Rodriguez said he was thankful to those who supported his re-election bid.

"I'm feeling very excited," he said. "It's a great opportunity and I am very grateful. I want to thank all of the voters who showed up to vote, and I'm looking forward to serving our school district for another term."

Jorge Rodriguez claimed 2,088 ballots in his race, or 52.13 percent of the vote, with challenger Mark Assaad earning 47.87 percent of the vote with 1,917 ballots going his way.

Jorge Rodriguez said he was looking forward to another term working with the school district's administration in implementing the Lead 2021 Strategic Plan, and he was not surprised when the race was decided on just over 170 votes.

"You know, it was definitely an experience this time," he said. "There were some external groups that got involved more and became more politicized than in the past. I feel that's why it was so close. But I'm proud of the work my team did to get enough votes to win."

He has served as the school board's president for the last two years, and was originally elected in 2008.
