FLORESVILLE -- Neysa Choate, the incumbent Floresville Independent School District (ISD) trustee representing single-member district 4, will not face a challenger in her re-election bid. This is why the board of trustees, at its Sept. 18 meeting, voted unanimously to declare that Choate is an unopposed candidate.

While Choate will automatically begin another term after the Nov. 6 election, the selection for single-member district 1 will be left to the voters. That seat was held by Tom Ray until his resignation last month. Dr. Joel Odom and William R. “Bill” Meuth Jr. are vying for election to that post.

Also related to the upcoming election, the board voted to appoint Floresville ISD Business Manager Linnci Angle as the election judge. Orie Ramirez will serve as her alternate.

In addition, those casting ballots in this election will do so in Floresville City Hall. This is because the board voted to contract with the city of Floresville for election services. Floresville ISD Deputy Superintendent Ken Barber said the district still would bear the costs -- an estimated $5,000 -- of hiring poll workers and securing ballots and machines for its election, but the city would not charge a fee for shared usage of its facilities.

In other action, the board:

•Approved requesting a class-size waiver from the Texas Education Agency, because two elementary school classrooms exceed the limit of 22 students. One class currently has 23 students and a second has 24.

•Rescheduled the Nov. 20 board meeting to Nov. 13, so that it would not conflict with the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

•Approved the resignation of Floresville High School science teacher Jacob Marcotte. The district plans to advertise for his replacement.

***In attendance: Board members Freddy Carrillo, John Raabe, Neysa Choate, and Doug Shoemaker; Superintendent Jerry Lee Hunkapiller, Assistant Superintendent Sherri Bays, Deputy Superintendent Ken Barber, Director of Personnel Jacquelyn Baker, Business Manager Linnci Angle, Director of Assessment Mary Anne Barber, Director of Special Education Paige Fuller, Director of Special Programs Jackie Kutac, Floresville High School Principal Sandra Galinzoga, Floresville Middle School Principal Sara Mann, and Floresville South Elementary School Principal Shelley Keck.
