Despite the undemocratic takeover of HISD by the far-right State of Texas, there are indeed HISD Board elections this November. There are four races. Two contested and two uncontested. Here is some explanation of the ongoing elected Board.
Dani Hernandez in District 3 and Dr. Patricia Allen in District 4 are incumbents running for re-election. Ms. Hernandez has been open to the takeover and Dr. Allen has been less open to the takeover. Both incumbents have challengers. Mr. Moore in District 2 and Mr. Gomez in District 7 are unopposed. So they'll be elected to the HISD Board.
The Off The Kuff blog has interviewed Ms. Hernandez and Mr. Gomez so far with more interviews on the way.
The Houston Democracy Project will have more to report on the HISD elections in the days ahead. And please explore the races yourself and ask the candidates how they'll fight for democracy. The October 24 forum detailed above provides at least some opportunity to meet the candidates.
