The Quorum Report has the scoop: Gov. Abbot has named District 2 DISD trustee Mike Morath to become the state education commissioner in 2016. (He was one of five candidates for the job.) He’ll have to resign his seat, and they’ll need to add District 2 to the May election. (In addition to the three seats already up.)
Who will run for his seat? I hear that longtime D2 education advocate Dustin Marshall will file tomorrow.
Please place your popcorn orders accordingly.
UPDATE: Here’s the press release.
