Midlothian ISD Unofficial Results

Incumbent Tami Tobey – Unopposed

Place 7

Shari Mason Dawson – 2,312 (43.22%)

Dawson posted on Facebook, “Although I am disappointed that I was not elected, I am proud of the genuine and honorable campaign we ran. Thank you to every single one of you who believed in me and trusted me- knowing I had the best interest of MISD at heart. I will never stop fighting for the children and teachers in Midlothian, TX.

As a member of this community, I am committed to supporting efforts to improve our schools and provide the best possible education for our students as well as ensuring we have the very best environment and support for our teachers.

I’ve always believed it’s of utmost importance to leave a place better than you found it. Our family chose Midlothian as our home in 2007 for their superior school system and I am dedicated to ensuring it continues to thrive despite the unfortunate negativity and challenges we are currently facing.

I love the people here. I love this town. Be kind to one another. There are little ones watching every step we take and every word we say. Let’s build some bridges and work together as apposed to destroying one another and manipulating the truth.

I truly believe people are doing the best they can. Let’s pray for those who are struggling at being decent, upstanding individuals. Extend grace. Give someone a hug.

Thank you for your unwavering support Midlothian!”

God Bless,
Shari

Harrison shared the following on Facebook, “THANK YOU Midlothian ISD voters!
After months of campaigning, you helped us achieve a significant win last night with 56.78% of the vote! To each of you who helped, who volunteered (in any way), who gave of your own personal time, and to each of you who voted for me I say, “Thank you!” Your outpouring of support was extremely humbling. To you, I promise that I will do everything possible to bring conservative education and business principles back to the MISD.
I want to say a very special “Thank you” to my wife, Trish, and to our grown children and their wonderful spouses, (and 7 local grandkids) for all your help, love, and support. “Soli Deo gloria.”
