Bond Battle Heats Up In Neighboring KISD--follow the link below--

School district releases cell phone numbers and other contact information to pro-bond-debt forces in KISDs controversial election. KISD already ranks in the top 10 for bond debt closely followed by FBISD which is also in the top 10% and uses many of the same corporate vendors. It has been rumored that FBISD is planning on another bond election while sitting on nearly 20 million dollars from the last RECORD bond-debt election of only a few years ago. Sources claim that the FBISD supt. is planning on using some of those funds for the NON-voter approved duplicate science museum at the central office. THIS WOULD MEAN, IF CONFIRMED, THAT HE WOULD BE USING TAXPAYER DOLLARS FOR A VERY LARGE NON-CAMPUS BASED BUILDING PROJECT THAT WAS NOT APPROVED BY THE VOTERS. Stay tuned while we update this...:
