Former WISD board president backs bond, incumbents
To me the education of all of our children is paramount to maintaining a democratic society. I served on the WISD Board of Trustees for 18 years and served as president for 12 of those years. I also was a special education teacher and, most importantly, parent in the district. I currently serve on the board of the WISD Education Foundation, Performing Arts Association and volunteer in the classroom.
I am asking for each voter to vote FOR Ashley Duncan Conlon, Charlie Martinez and Gail Wirtanen. Each of these have served our children on the WISD board without a personal agenda and with diligent study of all sides of an issue. Each of them has been involved in community service and serve mindful of EVERY student in this district. Study their credentials and you will be proud to vote for these three outstanding public servants!
I am also asking each voter to vote YES for the bond proposal. There is erroneous information being advertised by the opposition to this bond. I am 74 years old and know that my taxes WILL NOT go up if this bond passes! My WISD tax rate was frozen when I was 65 years old when I declared my senior citizen exemption.
Also it is against the law to use bond funds to pay teacher salaries! Salaries, utility costs, maintenance, etc., are paid out of the maintenance and operations fund, which is capped at $1.40 by the state. Please contact your state and national legislators to increase funding for our employee raises.
Please exercise your right to vote and vote FOR Ashley Duncan Conlon, Charlie Martinez, and Gail Wirtanen! Vote YES for the bond proposal! A YES vote is a vote FOR our children.
