Attorney Eric Dick has been elected to The Board of Trustees for the Harris
County Department of Education (HCDE)! Elected to Precinct 4, Position
2 during the November 8th general election, Eric will serve as one of seven elected board members
and work to establish policies governing the operation of HCDE.
What Does the Board of Trustees Do?
The Board of Trustees is a dedicated group of community leaders which oversees
the operation of the HCDE. Members are elected to staggered six-year terms
from each of the four County Commissioner precincts, with the remaining
three members being elected at large.
As a governmental body, the Board of Trustees may only take action by a
majority vote conducted at a legally called public meeting. Meetings are
typically held on the third Tuesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at 6300
Irvington Boulevard in Houston, with additional special meetings called
when needed. All meetings of the Board of Trustees are open to the public.
To be elected as a member of the Board of Trustees, candidates must meet
several criteria, including:
- Be a qualified Harris County voter
- Have been a resident of Harris County for six months
- Be of good moral character
- Be of good education and sympathy with public free schools
- Not be connected with any public school district
Eric is no stranger to occupying positions of leadership, having earned
a reputation as one of the most highly respected legal professionals in
the greater Houston area. With two consecutive
Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ inclusions for his unparalleled skill and accomplishments within the legal
field, Eric hopes to use his knowledge and experience in this new position
to benefit the Harris County public school system.
