Breaking Bad star Steven Michael Quezada has won a position on the U.S. School Board in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The 49-year-old native, who has filmed the hit crime thriller in the state since 2008, revealed last month (Jan13) that he wanted to represent a newly-created district in the city's growing West Side, where three of his children are currently enrolled in school.

He was running unopposed for the seat - and the Associated Press reports that on Tuesday (05Feb13) he officially landed the position.

Quezada had previously declared, "This is my home and where I want to work. We're hurting out here and we need people who can go out and engage our community. I think it's my destiny to do that... I believe I'm in a position to help kids and my community. Education is the best way to ensure our future."
