Schools districts save by nixing uncontested elections

Mar 26, 2014

Two Lamar County school districts have cancelled their upcoming school board elections, saving the districts thousands of dollars.

KXII-TV reports that Paris ISD and Roxton ISD trustees voted this week to cancel the May 10 election because all three incumbents for both districts, that filed for reelection, have no opponents.

Paris ISD will save $8,000 while Roxton ISD will save around $2,400.

North Lamar, Chisum and Prairiland ISD's will still hold elections.
