The ticket for change (also known as “keep the change” by at least one of their number) appears to be headed for political oblivion. Carlos Cain and Bruce Albright were decisively turned away by the kind of voter that turns out to vote in May.
A very special kind of voter.
A kind of voter that apparently likes how things are going in Fort Bend ISD, Taj Mahal or not.
Glover and Bhuchar, the ticket of the status quo are the clear winners.
I have to say I am not surprised.
Not surprised given the recent history on the school board. Voters voted in a very confrontational crowd awhile back. A bunch of people that called itself the “new majority.” A crowd of people that turned Fort Bend ISD into a swirling pot of discontent.
Teachers and administrators left the district in droves. The board first ostracized then drove out of office a very capable superintendent. Then they held court while the replacement superintendent was moved to cry whenever they slammed her.
They are mostly gone now.
And that the voters did not want to revisit this bad time? No surprise.
