Albright Announces Intention To Run For FBISD Board, Two Incumbents File For Re-election

Fort Bend Independent School District Board of Trustee At-Large Position 4 incumbent Daniel Menendez and Position 1 incumbent Susan Hohnbaum have filed for re-election in the May 14 election. Bruce Albright has announced his intention to run against Menendez.
No candidates have filed for Position 5, currently held by Laurie Caldwell.
Albright is a longtime resident of FBISD and raised two children in the school system with his wife teaching in the district for more than 19 years. He has served as a volunteer teaching Sunday school for more than two decades.
Albright said that if elected he will “focus his attentions on the severe budget crisis the district is facing and work to bring more openness and transparency to the central office.”
“Restoring the board as the supervising body for the district is paramount in this campaign,” says Albright. “During times like these we must have community support to be able to continue improvements in the academic programming while simultaneously reducing extraneous spending and better aligning our processes of service delivery. We must be more responsive to the needs of the public and remember at all times, it is they who are paying for all this. The days of deliberate public deception by governmental agencies and their operatives must end during these tough times we now face.”
