Updated at 10:45 p.m. on Nov. 2: This story has been updated to reflect the latest election results.

Carroll ISD board of trustees candidate Andrew Yeager defeated Stephanie Williams in the Nov. 2 special election with about 65% of the votes, per unofficial results.

The two candidates, Williams and Yeager, filed for the race after Trustee David Almand announced this summer that he was stepping down before the end of his term. The term for Place 7 is set to expire in May 2022.

Williams is a former teacher and currently works as an independent facilitator at Love and Logic. Yeager is a media sales executive and adjunct college professor.

In a statement posted on his social media, Yeager thanked his supporters.


"As your next CISD school board trustee, I will always work for the best interests of our students, promote transparency in leadership and policies and work toward responsible financial management," the post read.

Williams told Community Impact Newspaper she was disappointed with the results but plans to run again in May.

"Obviously, we were hoping to win and at the very least to close the gap more dramatically than we did, but our focus is still on protecting student and getting the focus back on students and politics out of our schools," she said.

Yeager also told Community Impact Newspaper he will run again in May once his six-month term is up. During this time, Yeager said he plans to work with the district on making changes to the student code of conduct to address the grievance process outlined in the code.

"I look forward to playing an active role [in that process]," he said. "That's something that is at the top of my list to be involved in–to make it simple, to make it easily understood..."

All election results are unofficial until verified and canvassed.
