MISD Board Candidates Continuedj00om page 8B quality of education they are receiving. She says she feels she can use her business background and experience to help run the schools in a professional manner. She stated that that the students and faculty de- serve a safe, clean envi- ronment along with an en- vironment conducive to learning. She believes that all campuses can and should be recognized for academic as well as ath- letic achievements. Malakoff ISD's biggest challenge, Browlow be- lieves, is to improve com- munication and coopera- tion between students, par- ents, teachers and admin- istrators, and also with the community at large. But with tMs communication, she says, there needs to be an accounting for the use of tax dollars so everyone has a common goal. Homer Ray Trimble, incumbent Malakoff ISD Board Member, is seeking reelection. A Malakoff native, Trimble attended Lincoln High School here before it was integrated with the present Malakoff High School. He is married to Rosie Marie Trimble, and has five children who finished school in the Malakoff In- dependent School District. Two of his children, Meta Hart and Tim Trimble, live in Malakoff. Three of his grandchildren are presently Homer Ray Trimble in the Malakoff school sys- tem, and two more have graduated and gone on to North Texas State in Denton. His son, Timmy Trimble is Mayor Pro Tern of the Malakoff City Coun- cil. Active in civic and church affairs. Trimble is president of the Malakoff Dad's club, and president of Antioch and SteenCem- eteryAssociation. He isa deacon, financial secre- tary, and chairman of the building committee of the Antioch Baptist church. Trimble is a right of way technician for ExxonMobil Corporation with offices in Corsica'na. He was with Mobil for 23 years and now one year with Exxonmobil. Presently vice president of the MISD Board, he has served a total of 25 years on that board. During his .tenure he has served a board president once and vice president five times. Trimble released the fol- lowing statement: School Board Election offers tough choices By Loretta Humble The Malakoff School Board election offers you some tough choices this Sat- urday. Nine (or eight) good folks are running for three seats. I don't have any advice for you about whom to choose: those candidatesI k,oW are excellent oeople. The C..allengers, all of whom I have met and visited with, all seem to me to be quality people who would do an ex- cellent job. There are some distinct disagreements about how the school district's business should be run. But I think the majority of citizens, which ever candidate they favor, believe the current school board members are people of integrity, who have put in massive amounts of time with very little thanks for it, having no other motive than to serve their community. Local philosopher Tommy Tanner, when asked why he didn't run for the school board, said, "There's two things a man will kill you for. One is mesMng with his family, and the other is messing with his money. When you're on the school board, you have to mess with both." It's a tough job, and the pay is lousy. Folks who think they've made the right decisions will most likely vote for the in- cumbents who are running for reelection. Folks who would like to see things take a different turn will be vot- ing for some of their chal- lengers. Some people are going to be real happy Saturday, and some others are going to be real disappointed. Some feelings are already hut, and I suspect some morewill be. It sure would be good, whoever you vote for, and whether they win or not, if you would thank the present school board for all the work they've done, and pray for the new one. I respectfully ask that you re-elect me to the Malakoff Board of Trust- ees and I pledge that I will adhere to the following educational and ethical standards. I will make decisions in terms of the educational welfare of all children in the district, regardless of ability, race, creed, sex or social status. I will support all school personnel in the proper performance of their du- ties. ! will make certain that the board remains respon- sive to the community and taxpayers of the MISD. The first requirement for becoming a good board member is to care about people, and I do. My record speaks to this. I have experience on the board. I currently serve as the Legislative school board advocacy member for the Malakoff ISD. If elected I will do my best to make you and the MISD a good school board member. I ask for you to mark #7 Homer Ray Trimble for the Malakoff ISD.
