School Elections see only one contest


EAST HARRIS CO.– Of the three school districts serving East Harris County: Goose Creek, Crosby and Huffman; only Huffman will have an election this yeaar for the Board of Trustees.

Under state law, if there are no contested races then the candidate who filed for the seat automatically is named for the term.

This was the case in Crosby and Goose Creek as a lack of candidates prevented contested races.

Each district had two seats up for election this year. In Huffman, positions 4 and 5 were on the ballot. Currently, these seats are being held by Pat Buzbee and Kent Hjerpe.

Seeking election to Position 4 are Bruce Johnson, Lee Gruvert and Charles Mason.

Mark Rudolph is the sole candidate for Position 5.

The election will be held May 15, with early voting beginning March 16 and lasting through May 11.
