LISD held a Board of Trustees Election with three candidates running for two at-large positions. The candidates were Lloyd Pierce, Jeffery Smart, and June Jackson. Lloyd Pierce won a position with a total of 289 votes. Jeffery Smart and June Jackson each received 196 votes. The votes will most likely be canvassed at a May 16th Special Board Meeting. If the outcome is still a tie, there will be an automatic recount of the votes. If there is no change in the count for the two candidates, there will be a “Second Election.” There are specific rules and laws that govern this process, and LISD will follow these guidelines closely. We are very proud of all three candidates and appreciate their willingness to serve our community in this capacity.
