Four candidates file for two contested Hays CISD board of trustees seats


At the end of the filing period Feb. 15, both of the incumbent Hays CISD board members who occupy seats up for election May 4 had filed to run again, and each had a challenger.

Board President Meredith Keller, who was first elected to represent District 4 in 2010, will be opposed by Mark Summers. According to his application, Summers is a Buda resident and engineer.

District 5 trustee Esperanza Orosco is running for re-election and will be challenged by Kyle resident Frank Juarez, Jr., a teacher. Orosco was first elected in 2016.

Both seats belong to single-member districts, representing specific geographic areas. The HCISD board of trustees has five single-member districts and two at-large representatives.

The deadline to file for write-in candidates is Feb. 19.
