Four San Marcos school board candidates to debate at league event


Four candidates for San Marcos CISD school board will face off at the San Marcos Area League of Women Voters debate 7 p.m. Monday, April 23 at the San Marcos Activity Center.

Early voting for the school board election starts April 30 and continues through May 8 with the election set for May 12. Juan Miguel Arredondo, Paul Mayhew, David Chiu and Judy Little Allen — the last two of which are incumbents — are competing for two at-large seats.

Video of debate will be posted on the San Marcos Mercury a day or so afterward. The Mercury will also publish the league’s voters guide.

Long-time League member Brenda Smith will serve as moderator for the debate. After candidates answer the league’s questions, they will take questions from the audience. For more information, call the league’s debate chair, Jeannie Lewis, at 512-353-2872.

The San Marcos area league is governed by a 12-member board of directors led by President Carole Belver. The local League board generally meets the first Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Price Seniors Center. All league members are invited to attend the board meetings.

For information about league membership, call Margaret Lindsey at 512-353-2872. For more information about voter services issues, e-mail Grace Melcher Neal here.

  1. Thank you League of Women Voters for once again keeping the voters of San Marcos educated on the issues and candidates.

  2. Rodney,

    The group InSanMarcos is also having a debate of the school board candidates this Thursday at CTMC. The San Marcos chamber of commerce also had a recent debate with the U.S. congressional candidates.

    So I want to say thank you to all the community groups for keeping us all educated on the primary candidates.

  3. I was excited to see there was going to be a congressional candidate forum but was then crestfallen to learn of the fee required to attend. I wasn’t interested in eating at the conference center, I just wanted to hear the interaction among candidates and attendees.
