Ex-trustee seeks to reclaim seat on Fort Worth school board
FORT WORTH -- Podiatrist Camille Rodriguez, who was defeated in 2008 in her bid for a second term on the Fort Worth school board by educator Carlos Vasquez, is challenging him to win the seat back.
Rodriguez, 44, filed paperwork Thursday to run for District 1, on the north side.
Vasquez, 45, a political newcomer in 2008, won with 64 percent of the vote; Rodriguez took 36 percent.
In District 9, two candidates are challenging Juan Rangel, 65, a marketing/management consultant first elected in 2000.
Ashley E. Paz, 30, an event planner, and Melody Palacios, 57, who listed her occupation as housewife, filed paperwork Thursday.
Five of the nine school board seats are up for election May 1. Filing ends today. Trustees serve four-year terms and are not paid.
