Voters will get a chance to decide on Saturday who they want representing them on the Katy Independent School District board for the next couple of years.

Three candidates are vying for the Position 1 seat on the school board, including longtime trustee Rebecca Fox and community activist Sean Dolan, who has been a vocal critic of the Katy ISD’s administration. Local attorney Donald T. Keller, Jr. is also running for Position 1.

Only one candidate is seeking office for the open Position 2 seat, left vacant by Fox when she decided instead to run for Position 1. Lance Redmon is the president of a Houston-based construction supply company.

Fox, who’s a part-time motivational speaker and parent educator, has been a Katy resident for about 21 years. She has served as a Katy ISD trustee since 2004 and has held nearly every position, including board president.

Dolan is CEO of a digital marketing agency called PushFire. He has lived within the Katy ISD boundaries for 22 years, according to previous Houston Chronicle report.

Keller has lived within the Katy ISD boundaries for a total of 17 years and has a law degree from South Texas College of Law.

Polls close at 7 p.m.

The Katy ISD Elections Administrator will announce the results at 8:30 p.m. at the Leonard E. Merrell Center.
