This comment on the coming school board race was posted on a local blog. We thought it was interesting enough to confirm and repost here (from FBN):
"An interesting side note to the FBISD BOT elections is the possibility of the Sienna Plantation subdivision having 3 school board members serving after this next May 10th election. All 3 would have close ties with the public relations people for the company that developed that community.
Would Single-member school districts have allowed this potential domination by any one subdivision in such a large district?
Two of the current candidates from the Sienna subdivision actually live just a few streets from each other."
