Statement by Lan Carter

On Wednesday, May 7, 2014, Lan Carter officially endorsed fellow candidate Marvin Rainwater for the race for Place 4 on the Killeen Independent School District board of trustees.

Lan Carter thinks she’s the best person for a spot on the Killeen Independent School District’s board of trustees. However, she doesn’t think she ranks in the top half of the four candidates running for the Place 4 seat.

“Because of this I need to think about the best interest of our students,” Carter said.

Although the deadline to officially withdraw from the race has passed, Carter said she’s endorsing fellow candidate Marvin Rainwater.

"He has always campaigned with integrity and honesty and answered questions genuinely and succinctly,” Carter said. “He has never misrepresented himself in any manner and has the students’ and staff’s interest at heart. I don’t have to worry about him representing other people’s interest and that’s why I am endorsing him.”

She's a class act.
Wonder when the KDH is gonna report on the illegal raffles this "other" candidate held, and how this "other" candidate's campaign workers violate the 100 foot rule at the election sites.


Lan Carter is one classy lady. And I couldn't agree with her more. Marvin Rainwater IS the best candidate running for this position on the school board. I cannot express enough how important it is to the teachers and students of KISD for him to be elected. PLEASE, everyone go and vote for Marvin. We NEED your support.
