HISD Trustee Karla Cisneros will not seek reelection next year to the Houston Independent School District Board of Education. Cisneros represents District 1 which includes Northside and the Heights.
District 1 is 66% Hispanic, 26% Anglos and 8% others.
The district should be represented by an Hispanic.
If you want to be a candidate, there is a $300 filing fee. In lieu of paying the filing fee, you can gather signatures on a petition. For petition details, contact Board Services at 713-892-6121.
School board campaigns are not for everyone. It is tough to raise campaign funds and a lot of door-to-door effort is required. A lot of work is involved for a job that does not pay.
Let's see how many candidates step forward and offer themselves as candidates.
