Due to a candidate withdrawing from the race, the Edgewood ISD school administration office announced recently that the scheduled May 6 trustee election will be cancelled.

Incumbent candidate Gary Pool has withdrawn his name for re-election in Place 7 leaving Judy Steadham as the only remaining candidate for that position. Incumbent Jody McPherson is unopposed in Place 6.

With currently two candidates signed up for the two available positions on the school board, the Edgewood ISD Board of Trustees will plan to officially cancel the race and declare Steadham and McPherson as the winners.
