A second parent from East Dallas has reached out to discuss their view on the Dallas ISD District 2 race. This parent, a Kingston supporter, has decided to change his vote from Kirkpatrick to Marshall after taking a closer look at both candidates. Looks like a vote for Kingston doesn't necessarily mean a vote for Kirkpatrick after all.
Time to dive into these 4 priorities. Thank you, Lori, for letting us know a bit more about what you want to accomplish.
It seems that some of us have forgotten what the current race is about. Yes, it's good to see all of you again too.
Teachers have a challenge that started long before this week. Everyone is struggling to make sense of it.
Congratulations, Mr. President.
Today is the day where our trustees decide if voters should get to decide if and how much taxes should increase to support kids.
Turnout is still low, but one DISD teacher voted and shared her thoughts on the experience. Still time to make up your mind if you're on the fence about the DISD runoff! Don't let the turnout be as low as the D/R Primary Runoff Elections.
Most of our contests are over and it's looking like our next board will be an interesting one.
The 2016 Dallas ISD Board of Trustees Elections are the most important things happening this weekend. Election Day is Saturday, May 7th. Go vote.
Meet Mita Havlick. DISD parent and candidate for Board of Trustees in District 2. This makes the first District with every candidate having responded. Good for you D2! I hope a ton of folks show up to vote during early vote, which starts on the 25th of April and Election Day, May 7th.
Carlos Marroquin is the newest candidate to throw his hat in the District 2 ring. Get to know him. All of the candidates are so different, I'm excited to see where voters fall starting with early vote on April 25th.
Young man and DISD alum from Seagoville running for the seat Nancy Bingham has decided not to run for again.
The only incumbent running for reelection this cycle and the 15 year leader of District 5, Dr. Lew Blackburn has decided to once again run for reelection. If you don't already know him, this is your chance. He's done just about everything in education and is currently an administrator with Dallas Can Academies, a local charter school. Thank you for your service and years of dedication Dr. Blackburn.
Get to know what District 2 candidate Dustin Marshall is all about. Glad he stopped in.
