LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Lola Brooks is a candidate for the Clark County School District’s Board of Trustees District E, Which covers primarily the Summerlin area and parts of northwest Las Vegas. This is Brooks’ second time running, and she is the only incumbent.
She was initially elected to the board in 2016.
Brooks says there will be some adjustment periods for the board after this election cycle. She said one of the reasons she’s running again is because there are four seats up for elections, and three other board of trustees seats have termed out, so she didn’t feel that it was a good idea to have a majority of the incoming board be inexperienced without somewhere to help guide them.
She says her experience will help usher CCSD’s Board of Trustees during this process.
Brooks speaks with 8 News Now reporter Cristen Drummond about why experience matters, her relationship with Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara and goals if re-elected on November.
