Three positions are open, as incumbents Charles Gooden Jr., Rusty DeBorde and Pam Boegler will each run for re-election. Gooden will run unopposed for Position 1.
In Position 2, DeBorde—who has been on the board since 2011—faces challenger Mike Floyd, an 18-year-old senior at Dawson High School. Floyd, the son of former State Rep. District 29 candidate John Floyd, is the youngest person to run for the PISD board of trustees.
Pam Boegler is also up for re-election. Boegler served on the board for two, three-year terms from 2010 to 2016. She was then appointed to Position 3 following the death of longtime trustee Virgil Gant in July 2016.
Boegler will square off against a pair of challengers, Trevor Hale and Al Lloyd. Hale is a professor of management science at University of Houston Downtown, while Lloyd is listed as an educator.
