New Wake County School Board members Jim Martin, Christine Kushner and Susan Evans, as well as returning members Kevin Hill and Keith Sutton, were sworn in on Tuesday, marking the beginning of a Democratic-led era.
Democrat Hill takes the seat representing District 3 after a contentious run-off race with Republican Heather Losurdo.
The new board got right to work after a small reception following the swearing-in ceremony. Kevin Hill was voted the next chair of the board after two separate votes, with Keith Sutton being voted in as vice-chair.
