Reader responds to article focusing on Political Action Committee CCISD Students First

Letter to the Editor:

To Whom It May Concern:                                                                           


In your article published on April 29th, you question Inez Faison’s and other individuals’ role in the community effort CCISD Students First. Please allow me to answer your question: It is 100% legal, ethical, and appropriate for a school board member to actively lead or support a privately funded group in favor of a school bond. In fact, who better to do so besides those who have volunteered hundreds of hours to serve our community as a school board member and know just how badly these projects are needed?

As a member of the Facility Advisory Committee who worked diligently for over two years to recommend these projects to the school district, I saw firsthand the dire conditions of our schools. Quite frankly, everyone in our community should feel the same sense of urgency Mrs. Faison and others do toward getting our kids the facilities they need so our community can continue to thrive. I applaud her and others involved with CCISD Students First for their efforts.

And if anyone is still on the fence about voting yes for the bond, know that failing it today will just cost more in the future. Specifically, approximately $20 million more each year we wait. These needs are not going away, and our kids and teachers shouldn’t have to deal with inadequate resources. Please join me and vote yes on Saturday, May 4th.


For our students,
