Paul Blake wins Canyon ISD school board special election


On Saturday, voters elected Canyon businessman Paul Blake to the Place One seat on the Canyon Independent School District’s Board of Trustees. 

Blake defeated Claudia Burkett, who had been appointed to the seat in October 2021 with the resignation of board member Bruce Cobb.

“We are proud of our team and all the hard work that so many people had a hand in," Blake said.

Burkett congratulated Blake on his victory, and noted she will continue volunteering for CISD.  

“I wish Paul the best. I will continue volunteering and supporting CISD as I have the past 25 years. I pray for a great year for CISD,” Burkett said.

Blake will finish out the current term vacated by Cobb. The Place One seat will be on the ballot again in May 2023. Blake will have to run for re-election in 2023 if he wishes to continue serving on the board in a full four-year term.

“We are thankful when individuals from our community volunteers their time to serve on our Board of Trustees. We welcome Mr. Blake to our Board of Trustees to help us fulfill our vision of Empowering Lifelong Success for our students,” Canyon ISD said in a statement.
