Local attorney and LCISD parent seeks spot on Lamar Consolidated Board of Trustees
FORT BEND COUNTY – Alex Hunt, a Katy-Fulshear resident, LCISD parent, local attorney for
children and families, and former public school teacher, has announced his candidacy for the
District 7 seat on the Lamar Consolidated ISD Board of Trustees.
Alex has advocated for children his entire career. After graduating from The University of Texas, he
taught sixth grade math in a Houston public school. Through that experience, he learned the
challenges teachers and students face daily.
In 2013, Alex founded Hunt Law Firm, a law firm in Katy serving children and families. Today, he
zealously advocates for the kids he represents – ensuring their educational, medical, and social needs
are met in the child protective system. Last year, Alex co-founded the Foster Care Advocacy Center,
a nonprofit providing holistic advocacy for children and parents involved in the child welfare
Alex’s goal on the Board of Trustees will be to build consensus for common-sense solutions: “I am
a parent and life-long advocate for kids. I am running to bring my experience in education,
children’s advocacy, and small business to make our schools stronger.”
Alex’s vision for LCISD:
- Promoting smart growth – “Our area is the fastest growing in LCISD, and LCISD is the
fastest growing district in Fort Bend County. LCISD needs thoughtful, proven leadership to
ensure our schools keep up with the growth.”
- Ensuring safe schools – “We live in a wonderful community, but the threat of school
violence is an unavoidable, modern-day reality. Our schools and policies must adapt to
ensure our children stay safe.”
- Advocating for our children – “I will work to ensure our schools protect the rights of all
students to learn, including those with special needs, and that funding for our students is
both sufficiently and fairly allocated.”
The Board of Trustees is LCISD’s official policy-making body. District 7 encompasses sections of
southwest Katy, Fulshear, Simonton, and North Richmond. The election is Saturday, May 4, 2019.
