The deadline to file a candidacy for the Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees is 5 p.m. today. Three incumbents — Kelly Walker in Place 3, Paul Rowsey in Place 4, and Cynthia Beecherl in Place 5 — are running for re-election, and none of them has a challenger as of this morning.
Today is also the deadline to file a candidacy for the Dallas City Council. In District 13 — which includes neighborhoods just outside the Park Cities such as Caruth Hills and Devonshire — Ann Margolin is leaving office for personal reasons. Leland Burk and Jennifer Staubach Gates have already secured spots on the ballot. Holly Golvach and Richard Sheridan, who has no website, have also launched campaigns.
Election Day is May 11.
