Three Portland Board of Public Education seats were up for election on Tuesday, Nov. 5.  Current Board members Anna Trevorrow and Roberto Rodriguez were re-elected after running unopposed for their two at-large seats. Political newcomer Adam Burk won the the District 3 seat.

The seat is currently held by Laurie Davis, who did not seek re-election.

Burk, a parent, educator, and a former social worker who works in leadership and community development, bested Samuel Rosenthal for the seat. Burk received 2,422 votes or 70 percent, according to official results released Nov. 7 from the Portland City Clerk's office. Rosenthal, a retired radar system engineer and school volunteer, received 1,039 votes or 30 percent.

Seats on the Board are for three-year terms. The new Board members will be inaugurated in a Dec. 2 ceremony in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
