On the final day to file to run for two Fort Bend ISD board of trustees positions, 11 candidates are now on the ballot for positions 3 and 7 as of Feb. 15.
The election will take place May 4.
Position 3 now has four candidates, including incumbent Jim Rice, while Position 7 has seen six new candidates file, including incumbent Dave Rosenthal.
Meanwhile, on Jan. 29, the board called for a special election to fill Position 5, vacated when KP George was elected Fort Bend County judge.
Six candidates are on the ballot for this position in which the remaining portion of the term runs until 2020. The election for Position 5 will also be on May 4.
