School Board Candidate Deemed Ineligible

What Tyler ISD calls an "honest mistake" means a school board candidate is now off the ballot.

Sharon Williams filed to run in District 3, but a citizen's phone call to TISD headquarters suggested Williams lives in District 2. An investigation revealed just that, and Williams is now ineligible for Saturday's election.

The district says the board secretary and Williams both misidentified the candidate's residence on a map when she was filing for office.
