Three of the four community members who were finalists for the North East Independent School District board of trustees District 2 seat last year have now filed to run for the office, after the board decided to turn the decision over to voters.

The seat was vacated last August when board Vice President Terri Williams died following a long illness, starting a fraught process to appoint a replacement. After repeated deadlock, the board decided to send the seat to a special election in May, the same time four other school board seats are up.

Among the candidates running in District 2 are consultant Jacqueline Klein and longtime educator Rhonda Rowland, who both ran against Williams in the last election. Klein lost by a small margin and Rowland trailed further behind.
