Nine candidates made the Mansfield School Board Place 6 race an interesting one.
All the candidates had different approaches and concerns, but each wanted to make Mansfield a better place.
Two are left standing, heading to the June 10 runoff election.
Jessica Camacho, 34, says she fights for parents and wants a more open, communicative board. In the May 6 election, she received 14.7 percent of the votes.
With a plurality of 37.9 percent of the votes, Darrell Sneed, 58, will secure the seat if his voters return.
Sneed, a retired MISD administrator and educator, champions a philosophy that “everyone has the chance to sit at the table of opportunity,” and has the record to show it.
He also said he would “continue to do what I have for 34 years — help kids.”
Sneed has not only seen the growth of the district, but understands what concerns will need attention.
“I know the right questions to ask,” he said.
His experience and leadership in the school district shows that and more.
The Star-Telegram Editorial Board recommends Darrell Sneed for the Mansfield school board, Place 6.
