CISD to begin interview process
By ROSE MARIE EASH Staff Writer
The Comal Independent School District Board of Trustees met in special session Monday to review the district's superintendent search process with representatives from the Texas Association of School Boards.
Don KiUough, the TASB superintendent search consultant hired by the district, reported that 146 applications had been mailed out and the district has received 91 applications in response. Interested candidates responded from 21 different states including Texas.
“We really feel like we got an excellent response,” saki KiUough. “In fact, yours Is one of the largest responses that we’ve ever gotten in any of the searches that we’ve done.
“We mailed applications out to anyone that
District’s new superintendent could be hired by July 8, board members say
asked for them, but then we also asked people to give us names of people to invite to apply and we had some names ourselves. We got an excellent return rate.”
TASB narrowed the applicants down to eight for the board’s consideration. Four of the eight candidates are from out of state. The board selected six to interview.
The board indicated they plan to begin interviews Thursday and continue through Sunday with candidates coming to New Braunfels for a scheduled two-hour interview. Interviews will begin with board members introducing themselves to the candidate and then the candidate
will have approximately ten minutes to introduce themselves to the board. Each board member will then ask the same three questions of each candidate with responses limited to three or four minutes each.
The candidates will also have an opportunity to question the board on any concerns they may have about the position. Candidates will be asked to state their salary expectations but no negotiations will occur at these sessions.
On Monday, June 28, the board will meet with TASB prior to their regularly scheduled board meeting to prepare for the second interviews which will be held later that week when the final
three candidates will come to New Braunfels with spouses for a social meeting and the second interview.
On July 6 and 7 the board or a board committee will go to the chosen candidate’s district to interview board members, administrators, teachers and staff, PT A and Booster Club members, civic and business leaders and tax groups in the candidate's home district.
The board will call a special meeting for July 8 to name the new superintendent, lf possible the new superintendent could start by Aug. 15, according to a district spokesperson.
The only action taken by the board at the special session was the approval of Foster, Lewis, Langley, Gardner & Banack, Inc. for CISD administrators’ legal representation in the pending discrimination legation.

Action by Benitez and Bremer keeps Goodbread from sitting on city council
By GARY P. CARROLL Nows Editor
Only five days ago Judge Robert Dahoney dismissed a request by New Braunfels Councilmen Ambrosio “Butch” Benitez and Dan Bremer to prohibit Councilman James Good bread from serving on the city council as a holdover candidate.
On Monday, Dahoney approved an injunction preventing Goodbread from serving as a holdover candidate.
Ken Brazle, attorney for Councilmen Dan Bremer and Ambrosio “Butch” Benitez, filed a quo warranto action with Comal County Attorney Nathan Rheinlander, whan was ultimately approved by Judge Dahoney.
Dahoney dismissed the prior injunction filed by Benitez and Bremer because it was improperly filed.
Following this latest injunctive action, a hearing to determine Good-bread’s status was scheduled for Friday, July 2.
According to Brazle, his clients’ sole contention is that business conducted with Goodbread sitting on the council could be nullified if it is determined that Goodbread is an unqualified candidate.
The news of the latest legal action preventing Goodbread from laking office came just one day prior to a special council meeting to discuss hiring a law finn to represent the city of New Braunfels in the original lawsuit brought against Goodbread and the city stall.
As per the latest court order, Goodbread will not be allowed to take his seat as a holdover candidate for the special meeting scheduled for 3 p.m. at the City Municipal Building.For subscription, advertising or news information, call 625-9144
