Early voting results show Michelle Davis pulling ahead of incumbent Win Weber in the race for Clear Creek ISD’s District 2 seat.
Davis, who marketed herself as the “conservative choice” on campaign signs, earned nearly 52% of early votes, with Weber garnering approximately 33% of early votes. Will Stromeyer earned the remaining 15%.
A former textbook clerk at both Clear Creek and Clear Brook high schools, Davis told Community Impact Newspaper one of the biggest challenges CCISD students face today is the different levels of instruction and finding the right educational pathways for each learner.
Weber’s campaign platform largely revolves around adhering to CCISD’s strategic plan and using the plan to ensure equitable success across the district. When asked why voters should choose her at an Oct. 8 candidate forum, she said her experience as a lawyer and her commitment to lifelong learning set her apart and that she became a trustee to improve children’s lives.
“I have shown up and done the work, and I am thrilled with the work that’s coming,” she said.
At the forum, Weber pointed to a 2011 curriculum management audit that helped the district work toward a more equitable curriculum and said one focus area for the next superintendent should be applying those same ideals related to equity and access at a student and staff level. Current Superintendent Greg Smith retires at the end of 2020.
Weber served on the board from 2008-17 and returned to fill Chris Reed’s unexpired term after his passing. She was endorsed by former Superintendent Sandra Mossman in mid-October, according to her campaign Facebook page.
The District 3 seat is also up for re-election, with incumbent Arturo Sanchez facing Jason Clark. Early voting results put Sanchez at a nearly 23-point lead over Clark: the incumbent garnered about 61% of early votes to Clark's 39%.
Clark, who is an educator in Pasadena ISD and also the parent of a special education student, told voters at the Oct. 8 forum his livelihood is making decisions in the best interests of students, adding that he wants to help rebuild trust between district officials and CCISD’s special education community.
Community engagement should be a major focus area for the next superintendent, Clark said, including finding ways to ensure community members have a voice in planning through forums and feedback sessions. Resources also need to be put into place to improve some of the learning gaps present, he added.
At the forum, Sanchez said voters should choose him because is enrolled in a doctorate program and aims to be a model for both students and community members in terms of lifelong learning.
“My commitment ... does not stop with the work that I do on the school board,” he said.
The first step in budgetary planning is looking at what was done in the previous year, especially as the district has done an “excellent job” managing tight budgets, Sanchez said Oct. 8. Local funding is increasing, and trustees need to ensure those funds directly benefit students, he added.
