In running for school board for my district, Magnolia ISD where I have resided for the last 21 years it has become so apparent that the school board does not welcome outside opinions or viewpoints. If your not within their “circle of trust” they will put out all stops in stopping a fair election. The President of the School Board, Deboarah Rose Miller is sporting signs on her car for my opponent as well as hosting meet and greets at her home. It has been reported back to me that the superintendent made his rounds to the local schools asking that voter cards be placed in all the teachers boxes calling for massive voter turnout in support of opponent. Are they worried about something? What could it possibly be?
The Magnolia School Board giving the taxpayers “Taxation without Representation”.
