NEISD names new board members, officers elected
On Saturday, May 12, 2012, NEISD residents went to the polls and elected new Board of Trustee members in Single Member Districts 4, 5 and 6. Elected members include Jim Wheat (District 4), Shannon Grona (District 5) and Letti Bresnahan (District 6). In Single Member District 1, the candidate was unopposed and the election was canceled. On April 9, 2012, the Board of Trustees voted to cancel the election and declare Single Member District 1 Candidate Sandy Hughey elected to office.
At a special board meeting held May 17, all newly elected board members were sworn into office. Trustee members then elected officers, naming Susan Galindo (District 3) as president, Bresnahan as vice president, and Hughey as secretary. Additional trustees include Edd White (District 2) and Brigitte Perkins (District 7).
