Judge agrees to accelerate BISD election appeal
Fox 4 News has learned that a Beaumont court is promising to act quickly in considering an appeal linked to the Beaumont school board elections.
Tuesday, Judge Donald Floyd ordered the district to move ahead with a November election for three board seats, but Tom Neild and Gwen Ambres have no challengers for their seats. Only Janice Brassard faces an opponent.
Challengers have filed notice. They plan to appeal with the Ninth Court in Beaumont.
Today, the court agreed with the challengers to speed up the appeal.
The court plans to consider the case no later than October 21.
The election is scheduled for November 5, but that depends on the outcome of the appeal.
