In the race for DISD’s District 1 seat, former trustee Edwin Flores won over Kyle Renard with 59.7 percent of the vote.

Flores served from 2005-2012 on the board that hired Superintendent Mike Miles, and Flores has been supportive of Miles’ reform efforts. Renard, a non-practicing pediatrician who sits on the Dallas County Schools board, was critical of Miles during her campaign and expressed concern over teacher retention and teaching to the test.

Our current trustee Elizabeth Jones — one of the three school board members who wanted to call for a vote to fire Miles last week — did not seek another term.

Elsewhere on election night, DISD’s District 3 trustee Dan Micciche won another term as well as District 9’s Bernadette Nutall.

Mayor Mike Rawlings easily kept his seat with 73 percent of the vote. In East Dallas, Trinity toll road opponent Mark Clayton won a clear victory over the four other District 9 candidates with 57.9 percent of the vote. In Lake Highlands, Paul Reyes and Adam McGough are headed for a run-off.
