Bastrop & Elgin Independent School District Elections

Updated: May 2, 2023


We REALLY like these two candidates for Bastrop Independent School District Board. They are Joseph Thompson, running for BISD Place 3, and Priscilla Ruiz, running for BISD Place 4. They are both very dynamic people who, win or lose, are clearly dedicated to continuing their quests for great public schools in Bastrop County. We loved interviewing them and how accessible they were to us, even as we came late to the party.

Visit their websites linked above, or just click on their pictures.

You can also click on the video to the right to watch the candidate forum held by the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce with the two candidates running in Place 3. That is Joseph Thompson, and nine-year incumbent, Billy Moore. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, Ms. Ruiz couldn't make it to have a full forum for Place 4.

See Voting Locations at the bottom of this page.

Elgin ISD is Holding An Election too!

We also give a shout-out to Cheryl Reese, a longtime friend to us in the independent movement. Cheryl is running for Elgin ISD District 2. Read this article in the Elgin Courier for more here. If you use Facebook, click on the video window to the left and watch the candidate forum held by the Elgin Courier.

We thank all the candidates running for local office.
