Chambers elected to the Corsican school board | New
Kamar Chambers won 821 votes, against Kimmy Hollingsworth-Gorden, 695, to represent Place 2 on the board of directors of the independent school district of Corsica, according to the unofficial results of the special elections on November 2.
âThe election was stressful, but it was gratifying to see Corsicana speak the way he did on Tuesday night. People are thrilled to have someone who can speak for them on the board, âsaid Chambers,â I come from a low income community, it has given joy to a lot of people and gave hope that people have a voice in our community.
âDr. Kent Rogers was a giant in this community and although I can never replace him, I plan to serve on the school board working for children and representing the community of Corsicana.
âRunning for the school board was an honor,â Gorden said. âI appreciate everyone who helped and supported me. During the election, I had the opportunity to meet Kamar. He devoted a lot of time and energy to his campaign. The district is fortunate to have someone who is willing and able to wholeheartedly contribute to the community. I wish him the best and the greatest success on his new journey. Congratulations Kamar!
