Perez elected, Redmon re-elected to Katy ISD school board

Posted

Victor Perez defeated incumbent Duke Keller and three other challengers to win the position 1 spot on the Katy Independent School District Board of Trustees, while incumbent Lance Redmon defeated two challengers to retain the position 2 spot Saturday.

Perez, who is retired, was making his first bid for elective office. Keller, an attorney, was seeking his second term on the board.

In unofficial election returns, Perez received 5,718 votes, or 51%. Keller received 2,698 votes, or 24%. Eliz Markowitz, an educator, received 2,056 votes, or 18%. Cicely Taylor, also an educator, received 508 or 6%. Saki Krishamurthy, an educator and executive, received 161 votes, or 1%.

Markowitz was making her second bid for office after an unsuccessful campaign for the Texas House of Representatives. Krishamurthy and Taylor were making their first bids for office.

Redmon, who works in building material sales, won his second term by defeating Bonnie Anderson, an IT manager, and Patricia Haggard, a stay-at-home parent.

Redmon received 4,463 votes, or 41%. Anderson received 4,093 votes, or 38%. Haggard received 2,300 votes, or 21%.

A candidate needs only a plurality of votes to win election to the school board.

Anderson was making her second bid for the school board. Haggard was making her first bid.

Trustees are expected to certify the results at their next meeting, and Perez and Redmon will take their oaths of office then.
