Two board seats up for grabs


Two of the four seats up for election on the Hillsboro School Board are contested races.

As of the Hilllsboro Tribune’s press deadline, two candidates have filed for Position 2, the seat being vacated by longtime board member Carolyn Ortman.

Jaime Rodriguez and Miklosch Sander will vie for that seat. Rodriguez is a career specialist at Portland Community College’s Workforce Development Center. Sander is an information technology consultant and served as board president of City View Charter School, the district’s only charter school.

Position 6, currently held by Rebecca Lantz, is also being contested. Lantz has filed for reelection and will face Erik Seligman. Seligman sits on the school district’s curriculum committee and is active in the Washington County Commission on Children and Families.

Current board members Janeen Sollman and Monte Akers have filed for reelection to their seats and are, so far, unopposed.

The special election is set for May 21.
