Danny Flatt Trent School Board
TRENT, Texas -

There is some uncertainty in the final outcome of the Trent School Board election. The winning candidate, 51 year old Danny Flatt, unfortunately passed away the Tuesday before early voting. We called Trent school administration Monday afternoon, to find out what happens from here. They tell us they will canvas the votes tomorrow and follow state protocol to find a replacement. The School Board has 180 days to decide whether to appoint someone or to hold a special election.
