Two days before the November 2, 2021 Houston Independent School Board elections, Gerry Monroe, a candidate for HISD District 9, received a tip that incumbent trustee Myrna Guidry had somehow already garnered 2,800 votes. After an extended and suspicious delay in reporting vote totals on election night, the first votes reported totaled 2,862 for Guidry.
For a low-turnout, less than 10,000 vote election, a mere 2,800 votes can secure victory for a candidate as it allegedly did for Myrna Guidry.
The victimized candidate Gerry Monroe spoke to RER’s Angela Box about the timeline of events, how he was tipped off, and his subsequent heated conversation with Guidry’s campaign manager.
