Yesterday was the deadline for ordering bond elections in Texas public schools for November 4. The vote to order a bond election was on the school boards' meeting agendas of several districts last night. Some decided "no" - the time is not right; others said "go" - these needs are just going to get worse. I can now start to collect and build a list of those seeking voter approval. There will be a running list for premium subscribers that is accessible anytime - feedback is encouraged. read more arw
