Randy Franke is seeking a position as trustee in the upcoming Yorktown ISD School Board election on May 10.
Randy was born and raised in Yorktown and Dobskyville. He graduated from Yorktown High School in 1982. He has been married to Shannon (Metting) Franke for 22 years and has two children, Derek, 19, who is a freshman at Texas State University, and Shelby,16, a sophomore at Yorktown High School. Randy has owned and operated Franke Farm Services in Yorktown for 15 years. He is a member of First United Methodist Church and enjoyed working outdoors in his spare time.
“I have decided to run for school trustee because I want the expectations for Yorktown ISD to continue to remain at an excellent level,” Franke said. “I am a proud graduate of Yorktown High School and believe that I received a good education.
“My expectations are for the students of Yorktown ISD to be successful in all areas including academics and extracurricular activities. To meet these expectations, students must have the support of board members who will focus on the students’ needs above all else. It is the trustees’ duty to govern and oversee the management of the school district. Our students in Yorktown deserve the best teachers and other resources available.
“I believe the school district’s resources should always be used for the students’ benefit. I believe that as a board member, my knowledge as a business owner and life-long resident can be an asset to the school district.”
