Romeo Reyes was the incumbent in Place 4. He tucked tail an ran because he did not have the guts to face Lynn. Dora's last name is Martinez and the young man running for place 7 is Pete Villarreal.

Thanks Truth for the information that I left out. It looks like the only 50/50 chance is place 6. Everything else looks like a split vote.

Let's not forget about Reyes harassing Minter and KISD having to settle it court for a lot of money. Only a fool would put this Corando puppet back in office.

Okay! Fool me once, so lets all vote Reyes out so that leaves Dora or Gonzalez. Hmmmmm! I know who I am voting for. How about Peco or Corando? Does LG and Oscar even have a chance over Lynn? I haven't heard anything nice about Lynn. LG, I think ran last time and Oscar Salazar I never heard of him. I think Rudy has a great chance over Juan. I heard Pete is a very young man so he is probably out of that race.

Does anyone know what their Professions are? WHo is the best Qualified (and being a school board member now does not make you best qualified)?

I've heard nothing but good things about Lynn. Hopefully anybody but the incumbents win this race. Their micro-management style has got to go. Please people, VOTE for change.

In my opinion, the most qualified are listed below.
1. Mr. Gonzalez-- school administrator
2. Lynn Yaklin-- realty agent
3. Rudy Macareno-- local business man

I do not know anything about Pico, Oscar, or Pete.. L.G. Canales sellls insurance and annuities. However, he is friends with Garza and Reyes. Dora works at a bank and is aligned with Yaklin.

Thanks for the information "Wait." You brought up a good point about Pico having a child in the district. The incumbents do not have children enrolled in KISD. I believe that with the exception of Pete, all of the other candidates have children enrolled in the district.

I'm not voting for Yaklin. Wasn't she on a post a while back about acting like a fool at the football games and embarrassing her daughter? Wasn't she in a lot of business trouble years back - like sued and lost kind of trouble?? I don't want her speaking for my child and making decisions for this community. She may mean well, but people don't like her.

Yes she was in a post awhile back, but it wasn't for embarrassing her daughter. It was because of a couple women that thought she was being too loud at a football game. A football game!!! You must have the wrong Yaklin, she never been in trouble. I've yet to meet anyone in the community that doesn't like her, unless you're Corando or some of the incumbents. She can speak for my child any day.
No Accountability

You cannot believe anything written on Topix, no accountability. Nice try Canales or Salazar talking down Lynn Yaklin with negative talk. I'm a Yaklin supporter, have known her for over five years, funny, has a personality, has kids in school and truly cares about KISD, the kids, and Kingsville in general. In fact she has the best chance to be voted in and her opponents know that, therefore the negative advertising on Topix, thinking that someone will actually believe their negative campaign. She is well respected and is an award winning realtor and business woman with a proven record. She definitely has my vote. Caution: beware of negative campaigning, anyone can be writing it, even the candidates. Then they will try to deny it on Topix, we will never know for sure until this website requires a name/email with a post.

Here's the list that should win! All employed full time and will not waste taxpayer money traveling all over the country attending non-training conventions. None have close relatives employed by the school district and none are retired teachers, government employees.
If you are reading this and do not vote for someone, then you are part of the problem.

4th place- Lynn Yanklin
5th place- Dora Martinez
6th place- Pico Sanchez
7th Place- Rudy Macareno

Wow ! That looks like the group that has been trying to get everyone one out and has a vendetta on certain people in the school district. I did some homework and found out that there are only four people with any education background. Juan Garza ex coach, Mr Gonzalez current Administrator, LG Canales ex teacher and Rudy Macareno ex teacher. So what would Pico, Lynn, dora, oscar, reyes, corando and pete bring to the table? Just curious. These are people that have been there and understand the teachers and students needs.

So by this statement alone, "Here's the list that should win! employed full time and will not waste taxpayer money traveling all over the country attending non- conventions." your saying that Mr Gonzalez, Mr. Canales, Mr. Reyes, Mr Garza, and Mr. Juan Garza do not have any full time jobs. I need to do more homework and find out their secret to success.

You can't be serious. That is the problem we have with the board now is they try and micromanage the school rather than letting the staff they have hired do their job. Elect a board that is smart enough to hire a good staff and let them do their job. Not second rate educators that want to second guess every decsion. Look at the Calallen Board, none appear to be educators from the informaion on their website.

The problem we have now ! Are you serious. The only educators that are on the board is Mr Garza and Mr. Trevino and I don't think they are the problems. LOL ! trying to compare Calallen with KISD. Wow, completely two different social-economic children.

I cant believe the only two candidates that where worth a flip at the forum are running against each other. Sorry Pico, Corando will beat you after that performance you gave at the forum.

It is sad to say that "Complain" is correct about Pico. The poor man had trouble reading the questions out loud. He could not answer any of the questions that he drew. Too bad that Canales, Yakllin, and Salazar are all running for place 4. It would have been nice to have at least one of these individuals run for place 6. Gonzalez in place 5 is very qualified and appears to be the only candidate that has a firm understanding of curriculum and procedures. His opponents for place 5 did not show up. Mr. Macareno and Mr. Villarreal also represented themselves well in place 7. None of the incumbents were present. This will not bode well for them,especially because the forum was postponed to accommodate them.

Maybe we are just lucky. Canales has an agenda. He is presently harassing the softball coach at the school. What are his plans if he is elected?
Gonzales is a former educator who could not sell his insurance plan to the school sydtem. What are his plans if elected? We need Lynn Yaklin!
Salazar is an assistant superintendent in Falfurrias. We don't need an out of town assistant super from a smaller school telling our super how to run his schools. What is his agenda. We need Dora Martinez, a business person there to make business decisions.
