Tommie Jo Vidales would like the opportunity to represent the community on the Levelland school board.
She is a candidate for trustee in District 5.
‘I want us to have a successful system and I want to be the voice of the community,’ Vidales said, ‘because there are so many people that go unheard of because they don’t know who to talk to.’
She has been closely involved with the school district for the last two decades.
Three of her older sons graduated from Levelland ISD, and her youngest is a sophomore at Levelland High School.
She drives him to school each weekday at 6 a.m. so that he can lift weights, and he has baseball practice after school each day when the season opens.
Vidales grew up in the Acuff community and she graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1986.
