LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A man who has served on the Lubbock ISD school board for the past 15 years is not seeking re-election.

James Arnold, current LISD School Board Vice President, released a statement Friday morning.

Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees. I have enjoyed serving the teachers, students, and parents of Lubbock ISD for the past 15 years. It has been a very rewarding experience.

The relationships that I have developed with teachers, principals, and administrators are something I will cherish for a lifetime.  Working alongside Superintendents Wayne Havens, Karen Garza, and Berhl Robertson has truly been a rewarding experience for me, and I am confident that Kathy Rollo will assume the role of Superintendent leading the district to new heights. She is the right leader at the right time and Lubbock ISD is in great hands with Kathy at the helm.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family and American Bank of Commerce for allowing me the time to work for the teachers and students of LISD. I will continue to serve my constituents until the election in May and look forward to working alongside Dr. Rollo for the remainder of my term.

James Arnold
President

There are three seats on the LISD school board up for the general election on May 5, 2018. The last day to file to run is February 16, 2018. The District 3, 4 and At-Large positions will be on the ballot.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
