Today is the last day of early voting, and our Bethany Erickson did a stellar job of ranking the slate of candidates vying for two Dallas ISD Board of Trustees spots. You can find out more about District 2 and District 6 by following those links. Election Day for municipal and school board races is May 6.
But we’d be remiss if we didn’t share how proud we are of our founder and publisher, Candy Evans, who has run a fantastic campaign for Dallas City Council’s District 11 seat. She’s had the odds stacked against her from the beginning, running against a well-funded incumbent such as Lee Kleinman, but she’s been transparent and honorable, and we’re just beaming! Over the past six weeks, Candy has knocked on doors all over District 11 and received some pretty stellar endorsements. Her background as a journalist and reporter that never stops digging is an asset to our city leadership, noted by Dallas Observer managing editor Patrick Williams, and we’re glad that more and more District 11 residents are realizing it.
Want to thank her in person? Go early vote over at Fretz Park until 7 p.m. today, as there is no wait! Want to get up-to-the-minute updates on her campaign? Check out @DallasDirtCandy on Twitter!
Good luck, Candy!
