Pasadena ISD Cancels School Board Election

We’ve heard of a lot of things getting cancelled due to lack of interest, but a school board election?  It happened in the Houston suburb of Pasadena.

The Pasadena ISD Board of Trustees election set for May 14 has been canceled because neither of the two incumbents on the ballot attracted any opposition. The filing deadline came and went and no one filed to run against them.

The two unopposed candidates are Marshall Kendrick in Postion No. 6 and Vickie Morgan in Position No. 7.

The Pasadena School Board concluded that with no opposition, there’s no point in spending money on an election.  The board voted to cancel the election, and then officially declared the two incumbents “re-elected” to their seats.

Both will be sworn in for their new terms after May 14th, the day the election was to be held.

We’re not sure what it says when no one files to run against any of the incumbents.  Does this mean nobody cares about what’s going on in their schools?  Or does it mean the incumbent school board is doing such a great job nobody can see any reason to replace them?  You decide.
