Dr. Germanwala received 536 votes, or 63.81%, defeating challenger Tiffany Angus, who received 304 votes, or 36.19%. 

“It’s such an honor and a privilege to be reelected for Place 3 for the LISD school Board of Trustees,” said. Dr. Germanwala. “I would say that there’s been a lot accomplished the last three years, but there’s still so much more work to be done.”

As exciting as these results are for all of Longview, Dr. Germanwala said, “There’s lots of exciting things that are coming!"

“It’s a great ‘win’ for our community. Having a strong school district and a good educational program is only going to strengthen our community. Businesses and industries will come in. I’m a strong believer that education for all children is imperative if we want a vibrant district and community, and it’s a great win for the city of Longview.”
