Fort Worth ISD District 3 trustee Quinton Phillips is asking voters to give him another four-year term on the school board.

Phillips, who was first elected in 2019, represents part of east Fort Worth and the historic Stop Six community. He filed for reelection on Jan. 30. As of Jan. 31, he is the lone candidate to file for a place on the ballot.

He has a background in working with community organizations on cultural diversity and leadership. According to the Fort Worth ISD school board website, he’s a founding partner of the nonprofit Community Frontline. He spent nearly a decade working as a juvenile probation officer.

Phillips has been a program coordinator with “Da” Village Education Center and served five years as a behavioral interventionist with Lena Pope Home Inc., according to the district.

As of Jan. 17 campaign finance reports, Phillips did not raise any funds in the last half of 2022. He has $2,249 in his campaign’s savings account.

Election Day is May 6 and early voting starts April 24.

Fort Worth ISD board members are elected in single-member districts. They serve four-year terms. The seats for Districts 2, 5 and 6 also are set for the election.

Candidates have until Feb. 17 to file for a place on the ballot.
