MISSION—The Mission CISD boardroom was filled to the brim with supporters of the A+ team as they took their oath to sit on the district’s board of trustees. On Tuesday, the district not only welcomed new board members but also said goodbye to those ending their term.
James E. Olivarez, Raymond Longoria and Oscar Martinez have each spent over a decade sitting on the district’s board. Each member addressed the community and thanked them for their continued support, especially to friends and family who would help campaign during election season.
In Place 1, Roy Vela won with 2,385 votes against Marcie Gonzalez Acosta who earned 1,149 votes; Vela replaced Longoria on the board of trustees.
