The Woodlands Area Chamber Hosts Conroe ISD Board of Trustees Candidate Forum
THE WOODLANDS, TX –The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce’s Business Advocacy Council held a candidate forum on Wednesday, October 10 to give voters a chance to become educated on candidates running for the Conroe Independent School District Board of Trustees.
Three seats up for election Nov. 6, Positions 1, 2, and 3, are contested races. Four candidates including Theresa Wagaman, Dale Inman and Kathleen Harmatuk-Swisher (Position 1) and Skeeter Hubert (Position 3) participated in the forum moderated by Hannah Zedaker of Community Impact Newspaper.
Those elected will serve four-year terms without compensation as members of the district’s governing body. The board operates on a two-year election cycle, splitting the seven-seat panel between election years so that the entire board is not replaced at one time.
