Only one candidate has filed to run for each of three Hays CISD board of trustee seats as Feb. 14, the filing deadline.

Both District 2 trustee Willie Tenorio and at-large trustee Vanessa Petrea will run for re-election and have no challengers. As previously reported, District 1 trustee Teresa Tobias announced in January that she would not run for re-election, but one candidate—Raul Vela Jr.—has filed for a place on the ballot.
Vela is a member of the facilities and bond oversight committee; he was appointed by Tobias.

Also on the May 2 ballot in Hays CISD is a $217.3 million bond that includes funding for new and expanded schools, a new central administration building, more school buses and stadium expansions, among other measures.
