BISD releases candidate filing list
BEAUMONT - The Beaumont ISD released on Tuesday a list of candidates for a possible November election that remains very much uncertain.
According to an election order the board approved, the election is for Districts IV, VI and VII. Incumbents Gwen Ambres, Tom Neild and Janice Brassard have filed for those seats. Joseph Hilliard has also filed for Brassard's seat.
Rev. John Adolph has filed for an at-large seat, if the election ends up including at-large positions.
There are legal questions remaining to be answered before the district can hold a November election.
