Big Spring ISD calling off trustee elections

March 20, 2013

Scratch one election.

Citing a lack of contested races, Big Spring Independent School District trustees are expected to formally cancel the May trustee elections when they hold their monthly meeting at 5:15 p.m. Thursday in the high school board room.

Three trustee positions are up for election in BSISD — District 5, held by Chad Wash, District 6, held by Jeff Brorman, and District 7, in which Phil Furqueron is the incumbent. However, only Wash and Brorman filed for the May election, BSISD Business Manager Debbie Green said, canceling the need for the May election.

Since they have no opposition, Wash and Brorman will be declared the winner of their respective races. As for District 7, school district officials will likely appoint someone to the position once Furqueron's term expires in May.

District 7, which has been represented by Furqueron since 2001, encompasses most of the western region of the school district.

Also Thursday, trustees will hold a public hearing and take possible action on a proposal to sell the Bauer Elementary campus to Greater Opportunities of the Permian Basin, which oversees the local Head Start program.

GOPB and school district officials have been discussing the possible sale of the Bauer property for several months. Head Start classes are currently held at the former Lakeview campus in northwest Big Spring.

In other business Thursday, trustees will consider:

• The possible lease of the district's mineral interests in five acres of property located north of Big Spring.

• Employment recommendations.

• Reports on enrollment and personnel.
