As the local election cycle looms just around the corner, three of Liberty County’s school districts are set for elections Saturday, May 7, with Hardin, Hull-Daisetta, and Cleveland ISD’s all going to the polls.
Dayton and Devers canceled their elections, with no one filing other than the incumbents, while Tarkington ISD conducts November elections.
Liberty also canceled their regular election; however, they will have a new board member, with the resignation of Bruce Bell. In that special called election, Julie Hebert will be seated to fill that position with no opposition.
In Cleveland, there are a pair of seats up for grabs, with CISD Board President Willie Carter drawing an opponent in LaDerrington Baldwin in the race for Position 4.
Incumbent and Board Secretary Amanda Brooks will face Sharica Lewis in the contest for Position 5 on the board.
Voters in Hardin ISD will have several candidates jockeying for their board of trustees, with four positions on the upcoming ballot.
Position 3 incumbent Board Vice President James “Bubba” Campbell draws a pair of competitors in Charlie Wakefield and Stephanie Johnson Clark in the race.
Board Secretary Dana Holst will face challenger Joey Scheffer for Position 4.
Board Member Charles Bolds will seek another term in Position 5, while Jennifer Parker will try and unseat him in that race.
The final spot on the ballot in Hardin is for Position 7, with incumbent Michelle Hotaling facing Bethany Walker.
Finally, over in Hull-Daisetta ISD, there will be at least one new representative on the school board, with Position 6 held by Gaye Nell Harrison up for grabs. Three candidates have filed with Bradley Davis, Colby Fregia, and Anna-Lou Warren, hoping to serve.
In the race for Position 7, Vice President Anthony Gerard Eaglin will face Jim Parker.
