I voted against the TRE. Based on publicly available financial analysis, the TRE was a bad idea and it was a very good thing that voters rejected the plan. The PROOF is in FISD's own published financial data. When FISD was promoting the TRE, they projected $17 Million of budget DEFICITS in the next several years. Did that happen? NO! Just two weeks after the TRE vote, FISD admitted that the just completed budget actually had a $31 Million SURPLUS. Even more concerning is over that five year projection, FISD now forecasts an $85 MILLION SURPLUS. Why did the existing board approve putting the TRE with it's $.13 Tax Increase on the ballot? What diligence did they conduct to validate the Administration's financial projections?
We need a Trustee on the Board that will ask the hard questions and not simply accept data they are given. I will ask those hard questions!
