Mayor of Euless
We have really worked hard for years to make Euless into the “FabEuless” city it is.
I hope the citizens will get out and vote for Linda Martin for mayor and Jeremy Tompkins for Place 2. These two citizens live and volunteer in our city and have done so for many years. They have the interest of the city and citizens foremost in their hearts and minds.
Please get out and vote for the interest of our city.

The far right is running three candidates in alliance with one already on the Crowley ISD board; they call her Mrs. No because she votes no on supply lists for athletics and arts, no on hiring grant-funded special education diagnosticians, no on teacher pay raises and more.
They’ve been making ridiculous statements, suggesting we have a 12 percent-plus dropout rate, when it is actually one of the lowest in the state at 0.5 percent.
On the other side, we have two current trustees, Dr. Chowdhury and Thedrick Franklin, who are running for re-election, and Jay Hinton.
The choice is between three dads with the best interest of the district in mind and three misguided extremists with a clear political agenda.
Please get informed and vote for Hinton, Franklin and Chowdhury.

Questions in Keller
Is Jo Lynn Haussmann right for Keller ISD?
Haussmann claims to have the ear of representatives in the Texas House, but in reality was handpicked by representatives in Austin and outside special interest groups that oppose public education.
Why are these people interested in a local school board election?
There are questions about Haussmann’s eligibility to run for the board.
Having lived in Keller, Southlake, Watauga and Fort Worth over the past couple of years, her frequent changing of addresses may legally exempt her from running for this office. Haussmann already had to resign from Watauga City Council for similar residency issues.
Will she do the same if elected to Keller ISD school board?
