Longtime Princeton resident and former school administrator Bob Lovelady has filed for a second term on the school board to lend his expertise to meeting the challenges of growth over the next few years.

Lovelady moved to the Princeton community in 1986. He brings a perspective to the Princeton Independent School District board of serving the district for 23 years as an administrator prior to retiring.

The candidate counts more than 35 years experience in education.

“I have seen the district grow over the years and am familiar with the challenges and vision that it has,” Lovelady said. “The district will continue to grow in the future and the school’s vision will need to grow with it.”

Lovelady pointed out that he has had a love for students and educators and wants to continue to be a servant leader and voice for them.

Three at-large positions are open on the PISD board this fall, to be filled in Nov. 3 balloting.

Other trustees whose terms are expiring are Kyle Strickland, who has filed for re-election, and Brent Collins.

Princeton city voters will elect a mayor and three members to the city council this fall. So far two candidates have filed for the election, John-Mark Caldwell, currently serving in Place 3 on the council, for mayor and incumbent David Kleiber for a new council term in Place 3.

Other seats to be filled are Place 2, currently held by Bill Glass, and the unexpired portion of a term in Place 4.

Filings opened July 24 and remain open through Aug. 24. The last day to register to vote is Oct. 5 and early voting is set for Oct. 19-30.
