Erick Knezek has announced his candidacy for the District 8 Lafayette Parish School Board race. The seat is currently held by Hunter Beasley Ph.D, current school board president.
"Our current school board has disintegrated into a system of total dysfunction. Kids and teachers are an afterthought to personal political agendas and embarrassing, self-serving decisions by the majority of our current board members," said Knezek via a press release. "Our current school board lacks leadership. The decisions of our school board have the potential to be our biggest asset or our most costly liability. Strong, decisive leadership that is focused on our kids and our teachers in critical and to provide that leadership is why I am running."
Knezek is the CEO of Truston Technologies, Inc., a graduate of Lafayette High School and the United States Naval Academy. He also holds a Masters of Engineering in Ocean Engineering from Texas A&M University.
