We are proud to announce that our endorsed candidates, Thomas Jackson and Christine Hartley, easily secured victory over their opponents. Christine Hartley even managed to unseat the Position Two incumbent.
We look forward to seeing these two Trustee-elects take their seats on the Cy-Fair ISD school board in January.

For those of you that have not yet made it to the ballot box to vote for our endorsed candidates, Thomas Jackson (Position One) and Christine Hartley (Position Two), you may be surprised to learn that the legislature, as busy as it was to prevent public schools from accessing the rainy day fund, are attempting to add no less than 10 amendments on the ballot.
