Board members plan to appoint a new trustee to fill the vacancy by its Jan. 12 meeting.
To qualify, one must live within the boundaries of District 6, be a U.S. citizen and be registered to vote.
Applications are due at 5 p.m. on Jan. 3. Those interested in the seat should submit resumes and letters of interest to the following address:
c/o HISD Board Services
Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center
4400 West 18th Street
Houston, TX 77092-8501
Here’s a map of the HISD districts, and here are the requirements to serve. Whoever gets appointed will serve till the end of the year, as Meyers’ term is up in 2017. It will be interesting to see if the Board appoints a caretaker, or someone who plans to run for the seat in November. Of course, as we know, sometimes the former can become the latter, so parse any statements they make very carefully. Good luck to all the applicants.
