The Galveston Independent School District Board of Trustees on Wednesday voted unanimously to cast the district's 597 ballots in favor of re-electing Victor Pierson to the Galveston Central Appraisal District Board of Directors.

Pierson, along with Scott Brast, Clay Morrison, David Moss and Kevin Corcoran are seeking re-election to the five-member board, and Vaun Henry, Mary Trish Hanks, Roney McCrary and Bruce Clawson have also been nominated for election to the board. Galveston County Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson also serves on the board as an ex-officio member. Taxing entities in Galveston County may cast a number of ballots based on their percentage of the overall tax levy of the county.
