Anne Davis-Simpson has been re-elected to the Northwest ISD board of trustees Place 3 seat, according to unofficial results from Tarrant, Denton and Wise counties.
Incumbent Davis-Simpson, who is a retired educator, was up against environmental scientist Stacey R. Bauer for her Place 3 seat. Davis-Simpson was first elected to her position in 2013.
Results show that Davis-Simpson got 2,717, or 51.43%, of the vote, and Bauer received 2,566, or 48.57%, of the vote.
"Thank you to our communities who voted in the Northwest ISD board of trustees election," Davis-Simpson said in a statement to Community Impact Newspaper. "Our families and community leaders are sincerely interested in our children's learning and the continued success of Northwest ISD."
In the statement, Davis-Simpson also thanked Bauer, who she said is "a great supporter of the district."
"A core belief in Northwest ISD is that 'kids come first,'" Davis-Simpson said. "This belief guides all that we do. I am excited to continue our work with the board and celebrate all of our teachers and staff who work daily putting our children first. With the continued growth that Northwest is experiencing, I look forward to working together with everyone in all of our 14 communities."
Place 4 incumbent Judy Copp retained her seat, as she did not have any candidates file to run against her.
