Mineral Wells ISD School Board Place 4 Candidates

(Continued)

Q: The district is currently undergoing a facilities assessment. With decreasing state revenues for public schools, how would you approach generating revenue to address facility needs?

A: I’m unable to answer this question without gathering all resources on the subject.

Q: How has your experience and background uniquely prepared you for the duties of a school board member?

A: Lived in Mineral Wells all my life and am a taxpayer. I am a former student in the district, a father and have worked within the school district for five years.

Q: What are other issues facing the district and what would you most like to accomplish as a Mineral Wells ISD trustee during your term, if elected?

 A: I worked with teachers and staff and saw their frustration. Our teachers work so hard with little pay. If elected, I believe that we can find ways to increase their pay putting them above the state minimum.

Background information:

Scott Aaron was born in Weatherford and has lived in Mineral Wells for over 35 years, attending Mineral Wells ISD schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. He has been married for 18 years to a MWISD graduate. We have three children – a daughter who attends Mineral Wells High School, a son who will be in junior high next year, and a daughter who attends Lamar Elementary. My mother taught for MWISD for years and recently retired and still lives in Mineral Wells. I work in the oilfield industry as a co-owner of an oilfield construction business and am very active in youth programs in our community. I enjoy playing golf, watching football, playing softball, hunting, fishing and most of all – activities with my family and friends.

Q: What is the importance of Mineral Wells ISD to this community and what can a school board trustee do to strengthen the district's functionality?
