The Woodlands Chamber hosts Conroe ISD candidate forum
THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce’s Business Advocacy Council held a candidate forum on Wednesday, Oct. 10 to give voters a chance to become educated on candidates running for the Conroe Independent School District Board of Trustees.
Three seats up for election Nov. 6, Positions 1, 2 and 3, are contested races. Four candidates including Theresa Wagaman, Dale Inman and Kathleen Harmatuk-Swisher (Position 1) and Skeeter Hubert (Position 3) participated in the forum.
Those elected will serve four-year terms without compensation as members of the district’s governing body. The board operates on a two-year election cycle, splitting the seven-seat panel between election years so that the entire board is not replaced at one time.
Conroe ISD is a 348 square mile school district located in the Houston, Texas metropolitan area. The geographic areas of the district are diverse and include The Woodlands, Shenandoah, Oak Ridge North, Conroe, and Caney Creek, as well as several other smaller towns, communities, and unincorporated areas. Conroe ISD is one of the fastest growing school districts in the State with an average enrollment growth of 1,500 students per year.
The Chamber will host a candidate forum for The Woodlands Township Board of Directors on Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 5-6 p.m. featuring candidates Treva Taglieri and Brian Boniface (Position 2) and Bruce Rieser and Francis “Frank” Dargavage (Position 4).
Area residents are encouraged to participate by attending the forums in person. The Chamber also invites members and guests to attend Business Advocacy Council meetings on the third Friday of every month at 8 a.m. at The Chamber.
The general election is Nov. 6, with early voting ending Nov. 2.
