Coming from experience and from someone who personally fought the former ousted LMISD BOT attempt at passing a bond election, I can tell you that May elections are not good for getting voters back out to the polls after just having a primary election.

One thing I can tell TCISD is that our fight to roll back taxes was done so with the tremendous help of all of the Omega Bay and Bayou Vista residents who actually took the time to come out and vote, unlike the other 33% of former LMISD residents who supported the tax increase.

By having a better voter turn out he November election in my opinion is the best chance that TCISD has for attempting to pass this bond election, not May's election.

Mark my words....[wink]

My thanks to Ms. Lee for clearly and factually explaining the efforts that TCISD has made and continuous to make not only to have equity funding, but to have all the funding that should be made available to TCISD. It is great to have such facts noted. This shows that TCISD is a financially judicious organization with a focus to have the best education for ALL our students.

Doesn't matter when you have the vote I will be voting against it and encouraging all my neighbors to do the same.

I appreciate reading about opinions on voting for/against the Bonds; it is great to have freedom of speech. However, it would be interesting reading about an alternative approach to solving the problems with the various campuses. I just don't see having "permanent temporary trailers" be the solution. And, the longer we wait to fix the problems the worst will be for our teachers and students. Just my thoughts.
