Meet the school board candidates

THE DALHART TEXAN

In today’s edition of The Dalhart Texan, there are three articles that were written by the candidates who are running for the two open positions on the Dalhart ISD Board of Trustees. I thought about interviewing each candidate and asking them some questions about why they were running and about some of the issues facing the school district, but I am a teacher in the district along with being editor of the newspaper, and the issues that I consider to be important might not be the same as the issues that parents consider to be important, or that the candidates themselves consider to be important.

So instead of doing interviews, I decided to just give each candidate the opportunity to present their own case to the voters by writing an article explaining what they consider to be their qualifications for the position and explaining why they are running. It will then be up to the voters in the boundaries of the school district to decide which two candidates deserve their votes.
