FBISDWatch Endorses Watassek & Albright In Board Races!
Due to their concern over authentic and long-term budget challenges impacting the FBISD school system under the current school leadership over the last 5 years, FBISDWatch is officially supporting Bruce Albright for the at large trustee seat and Wade Watassek for the position 1 trustee seat. These selections were made after consultation with the watch election committee. No selection was made in the position 5 race due to several issues that were never addressed by either candidate Dr. Taylor or Dr. Reynolds. We would like to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to get out to early voting which began today and runs through May 10, with election day coming May 14th...stay informed and keep in touch!
