School Board District One Candidates Pound the Pavement for Last Minute Votes

Knocking on doors and making phone calls. That's how Louis Trejo and Erik Medina are spending the last 48 hours before election day.

"We're mainly trying to keep doing what we're doing which is work hard and get people to vote. The more people that vote helps everybody," says Medina.

Medina born and raised in Lubbock is also a Tech grad and current anesthesiology resident at UMC. As a graduate of Monterey High School he wants to serve the district where his education began.

"Not only am I a product of LISD I'm a recent product of LISD. I think we all have interest in the children but I think I have a personal interest in that I already have children in LISD," says Medina.

Trejo has lived in Lubbock most of his life and has been involved in many civic and service organizations. He considers himself retired but owns a local business. He wants to take advantage of his extra time to make a difference.

"I can dedicate the time that is needed to the vote, to the job of School Board District 1 trustee."

Two different but dedicated candidates. Each with their own visions about the future of education in Lubbock. Medina wants to close the gap between races in the classroom. "We as a school district need to stay ahead of the game and not just be on par with other districts but be competitive with the best," says Medina.

Trejo wants to focus on early education. "If we don't have money for early learning programs, we're out in the woods because that's where it starts."
