It all started innocently enough..........Last week, at a local organization luncheon, I was happy to hear that there is a group of civic minded persons working to inform and promote improving our schools and encouraging us to vote YES for the Fort Bend Bond Election on Nov. 6th.
The group called "Excellence in Education" had a spokesman address the group, ask for voter support and offered signs to put in your yard to help promote the vote. I grabbed 3 signs and ran home to stick them in my yard. I wanted to promote the Bond, too.
But, early this morning, I was greeted at the door by our Pecan Grove POA President, Jim Ashmore. He was there to inform me that I was a SIGN BANDIT! I was in violation of our community deed restrictions allowing one sign per cause or candidate! Ooops! I quickly complied and had a nice chat with Jim. He also completely supports the Fort Bend Bond Referendum, but he has a duty to take care of our Pecan Grove neighborhood. So, I'm looking for 2 more high profile yards to display my signs in. Don't want them to go to waste. I am also glad that I got a chance to meet Jim Ashmore today. Tomorrow is Pecan Grove POA board election.
It's important to maintain the quality of our schools by providing adequate facilities to house the growing student population and upgrading technology equipment for students and staff.
As of 2006, Fort Bend ISD tax rate ranked well below the average tax rate for Other Texas high-growth school districts. So, adding the additional tax would still keep FBISD's rate in the average range.
Please get outTo VOTE on November 6th!!!
