The local chapters of National Educators Association and the Missouri State Teacher Association held a "meet the candidates" on Tuesday. The candidates answered questions and discussed educational platforms during the forum.

Six candidates for the Houston board of education participated Tuesday in a forum in the elementary gymnasium.

The event allowed community members to correspond with the six citizens who filed for two vacancies on the board. Cookies and water will be provided.

Candidates are Tadd McCloud, James Bathon, Jim Root, Troy “Butch” Castleman, Robert James Enfield Jr. and Kay Walker.

Kathy Hutcheson and Steve Pounds, who filed and later withdrew, did not seek re-election.
