On May 9, neighbors will elect a new leader for the District 1 seat on the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees. Elizabeth Jones is not seeking re-election, and two familiar candidates are running for her place: Dr. Edwin Flores and Dr. Kyle Renard.

Flores, a patent attorney, served as District 1 trustee from 2005 to 2012. Renard is a non-practicing pediatrician and serves on the Dallas County Schools board. The two faced off once before in the 2009 election.

You can watch the candidates answer our questions in an Advocate video series. Over the past few weeks, we’ve had both of them sit down in our studio, next to our lovely (borrowed) fern to discuss how they’d govern if elected. Flores and Renard each appear in two short videos — one traditional Q&A, and one “lightning round,” discussing neighborhood issues, school board politics along with some hard-hitting questions about hobbies, superheroes and sports.

We’ll be rolling out each video here on our website, but in the meantime, you can access the entire series here.
