Trustee Norman Manning, the WISD board member for District 1, was at the recent forum and said he doesn't think either candidate is really trying to make race an issue in the election.
But he said he thinks there is a concern growing in the community that ethnicity should play a role in school board representation.
"It's not a racial issue, but there are people who believe the board should reflect the makeup of the student population in WISD," Manning said.

"We're a majority minority district, but the board doesn't reflect that," said Waco Independent School District trustee Norman Manning, who is black. "It seems like there should at least be another Hispanic member, if not another African-American member, too."
WISD's 2009-10 demographic makeup was about 54 percent Hispanic, 34 percent black and 12 percent white, according to Texas Education Agency reports.
Waco Independent School District trustee Norman Manning proposed reconfiguring the board to allow more minority representatives. Waco Independent School District trustee Norman Manning has proposed reconfiguring the board to allow more minority representatives.
Manning made a motion at a June school board meeting to change to a board configuration composed of seven single-member districts, based on the thought that it would produce more minority members. No vote was taken on the proposal.
Manning, who holds the district 1 seat, said he has constituents who share his feelings.
"It has been brought up to me by people in the community," he said. "It's not an idea I came up with."
He said some residents believe a board of a different racial mix would not have voted 4-3 to close G.L. Wiley Middle School in August 2009, citing low enrollment. Wiley received its fifth "unacceptable" rating from state education officials that year despite recent improvements in student test scores.
"There are still some people who have hard feelings about Wiley," Manning said.
Manning was not on the school board at that time and said he can't say which way he would have voted on Wiley.
Manning said he wants to do some more research on the districts and registered voters before he asks for the topic to be put on a future meeting agenda.
He also wants to talk to board members from other school districts that are configured differently.
Manning said he'd be willing to consider a configuration of six single member districts and one at-large seat to better balance the board. But he said he doesn't think he would have the support on the board right now to pass a motion to change the configuration.
