After winning 52 percent of the vote on Saturday, Elizabeth Jones became the new Dallas ISD District 1 trustee, replacing veteran board member Edwin Flores.

Throughout the campaign, Jones has addressed the need for a more results-minded board with people who know the exact steps to take on any initiative – someone who can navigate financial reports and provide better accountability for the district.

“There is too much time spent on things that don’t have anything to do with educating children,” she said during an earlier debate.

Jones has extensive experience in the corporate and financial business and budget analysis as well as community service locally.
