State Board of Education Member Will Not Seek Reelection

Bob Craig Campaign

A local member elected to the Texas State Board of Education will not seek reelection.

Bob Craig has announced today that he will not run for reelection to the State Board of Education, District 15, after holding the position since 2002.

Craig served three terms as a member of the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees, becoming president of the Board from 1990 to 1992, and again in 2000 until 2002.

Craig is also a senior partner in the law firm of Craig, Terrill, Hale, and Grantham. He graduated with his law degree from Southern Methodist University in 1976.

Craig said “At the end of my current term, I will have devoted 24 years to public service, working with students, parents, and educators to provide a quality public education…Now is the time for me to step out of public service in the educational arena and allow others the opportunity to serve. I will continue to be an advocate for topnotch educational opportunities for all students.”

Robert Duncan, State Senator for the 28th Senate District commented on Craig’s service, saying “I have relied on his advice and counsel in dealing with the issues of public education. Texas will miss his exceptional leadership.”

State Board of Education Members are elected to 4-year terms, but due to redistricting, all seats will be up for reelection in November of 2012.
