Eric Eager is seeking election to the Richardson ISD board of trustees.
Eager filed an application for the At-Large Place 6 seat currently held by Board President Justin Bono. Bono announced in early January he would not seek reelection.
The at-large seat is one of two positions up for election in May. District 3, which has been designated by RISD as an “opportunity district,” will also be on the ballot. An opportunity district is an area where a majority of eligible voters are of a minority race, according to RISD.
The District 3 seat is held by outgoing incumbent Kristin Kuhne, who announced last March she would not seek re-election. She said she hoped her departure would result in more diverse representation on the board.
The at-large seat sought by Eager is one of two positions voted on by residents districtwide. The remaining five trustees, including the representative for District 3, are elected by voters of a specific geographic area.
Early voting begins on April 20 and continues through April 28. Election day is May 2.
