Tiffanie Robinson has managed to come out on top in a three-way race for one of the largest school districts in Hamilton County, claiming 37 percent of the vote. 

District 4 represents many of the school system's lowest-performing and poorest schools, and encompasses portions of the Southside and East Chattanooga.  

Robinson beat out both longtime incumbent George Ricks and another challenger, Montrell Besley, a health and physical education teacher at Woodmore Elementary School. Ricks and Besley received 34.6 and 23.9 percent of the vote respectively.

As president of Lamp Post Properties and partner at the JumpFund, Robinson is bringing years of professional and entrepreneurial experience to the position and has said she will be enrolling her kids in District 4 schools.

Annette Thompson was also on the ballot, although she did not actively campaign over the last several months.
