FBN Reports On FBEF Candidates Forum

Fort Bend Employee Federation Hosts Candidate Forum
by John Pape, FortBendNow

Four of the six candidates for seats on the Fort Bend ISD board of trustees fielded questions at a candidates’ forum sponsored by the Fort Bend Employee Federation Thursday evening.

Position 5 incumbent Laurie Caldwell and challenger Jonita Reynolds were joined by Position 4 candidate Rodrigo Carreon and Position 1 candidate Susan Hohnbaum in responding to a series of questions prepared by the federation, as well as some inquiries from the audience.

Carreon’s opponent for the Position 4 spot, Daniel Menendez, was out of town and unable to attend, but submitted written answers to a series of 10 questions provided to all candidates in advance. . .

Jonita Reynolds and Daniel Menendez, if elected, would place 3 seats in control of one subdivision. Menendez was the candidate that dropped out in '07 and endorsed co-Sienna Plantation resident and current board member D. Reitz. We will update this at intervals.
