Bond Issues

Our Community & KWTP Sweeps Local School Board Elections

Congratulations to Heath Rushing and Angela Conrad, our two new Trustees as well as to the great incumbents we also supported: Charles Cunningham, Robert Sitton, Keith Lapeze, and Brent Engelage. We are looking forward to working with you to make Humble ISD schools even better!

Thank you to all who supported our efforts in electing 100% of of the Kingwood TEA Party Board’s recommendations. This includes our members who helped us block-walk and donated to our mail outs and emails as well as to all those who accepted our recommendations and helped us elect this fine group to continue improving our schools for our children! It was expensive, but worth it. Donations in preparation for our participation in the Houston mayor’s and city council races, as well as 2014 elections are gratefully welcomed.

And a HUGE thank you to all who worked so hard to get the truth about the Lone Star Bond issue out and especially to all who voted with us to make its rejection a reality.

Kingwood TEA Party congratulates and thanks every one of you who voted with us in this important election and to all of our great candidates, new and incumbent, who have stepped up to help make our local schools and community colleges even better!


Some Say Lone Star College Bond Not Needed

Dr. Kyle Scott - The Conservative Professor

The Lone Star College System’s $497.7 million bond referendum set for May 11 is meeting with some resistance from residents who believe the bond is not necessary.  The bond features a number of new projects to be constructed throughout the LSCS without raising taxes.

Kyle Scott, who is seeking a seat on the LSCS board of trustees, said he has several reasons for his opposition, part of which involves a January report issued by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, which projected lower enrollment numbers between 2013 and 2018 than the college system forecasts.

Robin’s Commentary: The report predicted a flat line in enrollments, the Chancellor said it in last year’s Report, AND Enrollment dropped last semester. KWTP agrees with Kyle Scott and Ron Trowbridge that the bond is NOT needed at this time. So at the very least is would be wise to wait and see if the record enrollment was population driven, or driven by the downturn in the economy that had many people enrolling to expand their marketability when unemployment went so high.
