Many people in both La Marque and Texas City have all been saying the same thing and that they would have had far more trust in this "committee of community members" if they had not learned that both Edna Courville and James Daniels served on this committee and who both were so instrumental in helping to shut down LMISD for good.

Just as James Daniels appears as scattered in his thoughts as he starts out with his opinion of Black history month, he managed to shift his attention to the schools of LMISD and he easily forgets that he once was a staunch supporter to " Save our shools".

Perhaps TCISD would do well to keep Edna Courville and James Daniels for being one of their spokes people if they ever have a chance of getting this bond election passed by it's voters. [yawn]

Ooops! Perhaps TCISD would do well to keep Edna Courville and James Daniels "from" being one of their spokes "person" if they ever have a chance of getting this bond election passed by it's voters. [wink]

Walter, I agree that Mr. Daniels’ and Ms. Courville’s endorsement does more harm than good but TCISD has no control over who says what. I doubt Mr. Daniels is acting in any sanctioned or official capacity. So far as putting them on the advisory committee, it was likely an attempt to make sure it included people of all stripes and all sides in the takeover.

The key thing is that they put forth around recommendation that hopefully the community will support.

Oops, “ a sound recommendation “

Gary you forgot to call him Rev. James. 😀

Mr. Scoggin, I can assure you that if TCISD holds the bond election in May, it will never pass. The November election will have a better turn out and better chances at passing.

Looks like TCISD has a big choice to make as to when to hold their election and when their odds are better at getting it past the voters.

May or November I will be voting against this and encourage all my neighbors to do the same.
