Board of Trustees Election Update

The Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees is expected to take action soon to officially cancel the May 10 election for two Trustee positions after no candidates filed to oppose Trustees Wayne F. Schaper Sr. and Chris Gonzalez for new, three-year terms.

After a Feb. 28 deadline for candidate filings had passed for Positions No. 1 and No. 2, SBISD Elections Secretary Diane Dickens certified that Schaper and Gonzalez were unopposed for election on May 10. An official certificate was signed March 5 by Secretary Dickens and sent to the Board of Trustees for action.

At its monthly meeting on March 24, the Board of Trustees is expected to adopt an order declaring that the May 10 election is cancelled, and unopposed candidates be elected.

If elected as expected, Wayne Schaper Sr. will begin serving his fourth, three-year term in May. He worked as an administrator, principal, coach and teacher for four decades in SBISD. He has served as a Trustee since 2002.

Chris Gonzalez will begin her second term on the Board in May. In 2012, she won election to serve the unexpired portion of her first term after being appointed to the position held by former Trustee Mary Grace Landrum, who had resigned.

If the Board action occurs, a copy of the Order Cancelling Election will be posted at each polling place that would have been used for the election if it had occurred.
