The EPISD board of trustees is a mess.
Of the seven elected positions two are currently unoccupied and a third is occupied by someone appointed by the board and not elected by the voters.
In the past cycle we have had two elected board members resign because they had higher political aspirations. One member left to run for congress and another left to become a congressional staff member. So much for the kids. So much for keeping a promise.
A third member resigned because of residency issues.
We are left with three retired teachers and an executive working for a local not for profit.
The school superintendent runs the district. The board is supposed to give the superintendent direction.
I hope the voters are careful in who they chose in the May election.
We deserve better
