Greene, Hollands, Brim-Edwards glide to victory in Portland school board races

The Portland school board will seat two new members in July and, for the first time in its history, concurrently count three Black members among its ranks.

Herman Greene won the four-way Zone 4 race Tuesday, claiming 73% of the vote according to partial returns as of 8 p.m. In Zone 5, Gary Hollands held 83%.

Julia Brim-Edwards, the lone incumbent seeking reelection, won a second consecutive term representing Zone 6 with 80% of the vote according to the preliminary results. Brim-Edwards first served from 2001 to 2005 before returning to the Portland school board in 2017.
