DSISD Board stays the same

John Pacheco


Voters reelected the two incumbents, Barbara Stroud and Ron Jones, to 3-year terms on the Dripping Springs Independent School District (DSISD) Board of Trustees.

The initial unofficial results of the May 6 election were as follows:

Ron Jones: 1,049 votes (39.76%)

Barbara Stroud: 1,032 votes (39.12%)

Trey Powers: 557 votes (21.11%)

DSISD trustees do not represent places; rather the top two vote getters are elected.

In a post election win communications, both Barbara Stroud and Ron Jones expressed thanks to their supporters and the community.

Stroud said, “I am honored that the community has placed their trust in me to allow me to serve for an additional three year term on the board.  I look forward to working with Dr. Gearing, Ron Jones and the rest of our dedicated board members to achieve the goals set out in our Strategic Plan. 

I want to thank Trey Powers for his commitment to volunteer service to the school district and to the community. I should probably also thank my husband Bob O’Boyle and my children for supporting my efforts in a volunteer job that takes quite a bit of time!”

Jones said,  “I consider the opportunity to serve on the Dripping Springs ISD Board of Trustees as a tremendous responsibility and honor.  Since I work with school districts across the country, I can say that we are fortunate to have the best teachers and administrators to work with our exceptional students.  I would like to thank Trey Powers and Barbara Stroud for their hard work and success.  I’d also like to thank Blair and Hamilton Jones, Matthew Jones, Dr. Charly Simmons, Alan Cohen, Chuck Lemmond, Laurie and Eric Cromwell, Brent Gibbs and many others who worked so hard on the campaign.  I truly believe every single student in our district deserve the best, and that is what we will work to achieve moving forward.”

Challenger Trey Powers issued the following post election statement, “This was a truly rewarding experience.  Through the process, I met and have gotten to know so many of our great neighbors.  I wish both Barbara and Ron the best and know our district is in good hands.”
