    Final election results for the San Diego Unified School District board member from District A suggest that November's race will be a tight one.

    San Diego school board President John Lee Evans will face National University instructor Mark Powell at the polls in November for San Diego. Powell and Evans only had a 0.2 percent difference between each other at the polls.

    As precincts began reporting Tuesday, businessman and recent college graduate Jared Hamilton was substantially behind Evans and Powell in the race to represent the north-inland region of the San Diego Unified School District's sub-district A with around 14.5 percent of the vote.

    "I am very happy to have come out on top in a three-way race," Evans said. "I am very pleased that when our schools face such funding challenges that voters are happy with my representation as we make tough choices."

    Evans was actually behind to Powell by 0.2 percent, but he will advance to the November election per California's top two candidates rule.
