FBISD Board of Trustee Candidate Forum

A representative of The Fort Bend Employees Federation asked me to post this announcement on the website. Don’t know why. My six readers already know about it. But if you by any chance didn’t hear about it, go and see the candidates for Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees. See them and judge them for yourself. I know I have to reconsider my judgment in one of the races as I clearly do not know the difference between Clayton Alpaugh and Bruce Albright. I kept getting them confused in the last election and the confusion seems to have resurfaced.

Again I am sorry for any stress or inconvenience that my simple honest mistake may have caused, especially to the 15 who had to view the mis-attributed video. It was a mistake of identity due to faulty memory and nothing else.

Press release follows:

I know some people that ran for the school board in my local district last year. Actually I knew all of them. I really doubt most had any idea about the Texas Education cuts on the horizon. They know now I imagine with most boards renewing teacher contracts at this month's meetings. Every elected position is important even every single local school board. The right wing takeover of the State Board of Education slipped right by most people until they started changing history and making headlines. Every one should know who and what they are voting for and go vote. Don't think , "Oh It's just a school board election and I don't have time." There should be a early voting location if you can't vote that day.

There will be early voting locations, Mr. Franks, and thanks for reminding me. I will post all early voting locations as we approach the days. And provide a link to the county's information. They have gotten really good, lately, at diseminating this information. Don't know why.
