Aledo ISD School Board Place 6 candidates

Early voting for the May 10 general election begins April 28. Following is information gathered from the candidates for the Place 6 Aledo ISD trustee race, incumbent David Davis and challenger Farida Goderya. The candidates have been invited to appear in a forum sponsored by the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce Legislative Affairs Committee at 7 p.m. Monday, April 28, in the cafeteria of Trinity Christian Academy.

David Davis, 51, has been married to his wife, Debbie Davis, for 26 years. The couple has four sons: Devin, 22, who attends Lindenwood University; Dayne, 20, who attends Harvard University; Daythan, 18, who is a senior at Aledo and will attend Southern Mississippi; and Dillon, 16, who is a freshman at Aledo. Debbie grew up in Aledo, and Davis’ hometown is Comanche, Texas. Both graduated from TCU. Davis has a degree in business marketing, and he has been a self-employed small business owner and rancher for many years. Members of the Davis family attend First Baptist Aledo, and Davis has been very involved in coaching and mentoring youth sports. He has been on the Aledo School Board for six years.

 

Q. What is the school district’s biggest problem, and how can you help solve it?

A. One of the larger challenges in the Aledo ISD is the growth that we will face over the next 10 years. I have been involved in shaping our district’s expanding footprint over the past years. I will continue to use the lessons learned to improve the way we grow into our future.

Q. What makes you the best candidate for school board?

A. I have six years experience in being a part of running a school district. The learning curve for someone new at this position is very time consuming and would take away from their ability to make an immediate impact. I believe my experience and knowledge of past challenges has me better prepared for the issues which lay ahead.  Also, because I have had four children in the Aledo school system, I am well informed about all areas of the district. All of this makes me the best candidate for the Aledo ISD.
