Jim Green — of counsel attorney with HLGR — was recently elected to a four-year term as the Salem-Keizer School District Director, Zone 4 (south Salem). As reported by the Statesman Journal, Jim was eating dinner with his family when he heard the news of his win.
The response from his family? His children broke out in song, regaling him with a rousing rendition of “You are my sunshine.”
Jim has been involved with the school district for years. He is currently serving as the chair of the Salem-Keizer School District budget committee.
In his new role, Jim wants to focus on student achievement, including eliminating the achievement gap and improving the graduation rate.
“I’m happy,” he said, “now it’s time to get to work.”
