The filing deadline for the May 6 Richardson ISD board of trustees general election ended Feb. 17 with four candidates filing for the two seats up for election.

Both the at-large Place 6 and single-member District 3 seats will see contested races.

In the single member District 3 race, incumbent Debbie Renteria will face challenger Bonnie Abadie. Abadie previously ran in the 2014 board election, losing to Kristin Kuhne for at-large Place 7.

Incumbent Eric Eager is running against challenger Blake Sawyer in the at-large Place 6 race. Sawyer previously ran for at-large Place 7 in the 2021 election, finishing third out of seven candidates.

Board members serve three-year staggered terms and are not subject to term limits. Five of the seven seats on the board are chosen by registered voters of specific districts, while the remaining two seats are elected at-large by all voters.

Early voting in the general election begins on April 24 and continues through May 2. Election Day is May 6.
