Followup To KISD Bond…

Things got kind of hectic on Friday and I didn’t get back to the issue concerning “Citizens for Great Schools.”  However, Friday’s Keller Citizen pretty much answered the question, which rendered my request to KISD moot.  KISD, however, responded this afternoon with a copy of the committee filing.

Anyhow…  I found it rather disconcerting to see that the largest contributors to this committee have the most to gain.  Not that it’s illegal.  I haven’t studied the Texas Election Ethics sections with regards to this sort of donation, but I’d guess that these companies have vetted their contributions with their legal staff members.  It seems to me that a commercial entity with financial ties to a project ought not to be able to fund a committee for the purpose of lobbying people to vote for that project.  It just smells bad.

    Smells bad is an understatement.

    No bid contracts for hundreds of millions of dollars to me is close to corruption as you can get.

    I voted yes on #1 and no on #2; I felt caught between a rock and a hard place.

    Yes, KISD is largely corrupt.  But it doesn’t change the fact that they need another high school.

    But you know, for just a few million more, they could build a fancy new stadium to watch KHS get its butt kicked weekly…
