Gloria Carrillo won a narrow victory over Christopher Riddick in the race for the at-large Place 3 seat on the Grand Prairie school board.

In other races, incumbent Aaron King, who was appointed to the board earlier this year when J.D. Stewart resigned for health reasons, easily defeated challenger Johnny Boucher, a transgender man making his first run for office.

King defeated Boucher in the race for single-member District 4. Chester McCrary was unopposed in single-member District 2.

The school district adopted a single-member district plan in 2014 after it settled a lawsuit aimed at increasing Hispanic representation on the board.

Carrillo ran last year and lost in the race for Place 6, currently held by Steve Pryor.
