The Hutto Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum for five candidates running for a seat on the Hutto ISD Board of Trustees at their regular luncheon March 9.

The candidates are Peter Gordon, Terrance Owens, Russ Metcalf, Morgan Hubbard and Billie Logiudice. Logiudice is the only incumbent running in the May 7 election.

The school board’s seven trustees are elected at-large—meaning trustees do not represent particular districts—and the top three vote-getters will be elected for the three open seats.

Logiudice is seeking another three-year term, with the remaining two seats being vacated by Sheila Knapp and Doug Gaul.

In January, Gaul announced his bid for mayor for the city of Hutto. He is uncontested in that race.
