HISD Board Votes to Hold Election To Fill Vacant Seat

August 19, 2010

At a special meeting of the HISD Board of Education today, board trustees voted unanimously to hold a special election to fill the vacancy left by former District VIII Trustee Diana Davila.

Davila announced her resignation from the board last month citing family reasons.

“I want to thank my fellow board members and the interested individuals who took time out of their schedules to meet with us this week at Furr High School,” said Board President Greg Meyers. “Even though the board has decided to hold a special election, we met some fine community members who clearly are focused and committed to Houston’s children and what is best to further their academic achievement. Hopefully some of them will decide to pursue the District VIII trustee position.”

The election will take place during the general election on Nov. 2.

Interested candidates can file starting Friday, Aug. 20, at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center located at 4400 West 18th St.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The filing deadline for candidates is 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 30.
