Municipal and School Board Races
Early Voting: April 25 – May 3
Election Day: May 7
All local election ballots will include two statewide propositions for Constitutional Amendments. We recommend yes to both. They both will reduce property tax.
NOTE: It is especially true in local races that MOST of the time we are voting on the lesser of 2 evils. This is why we repeat over and over that these are NOT endorsements. It is very rare for us to endorse, and we will state that we have when applicable. Until good people step up to run, sadly this is what we are generally forced to do.
It is also important to note that this list is just provided as a starting point for your own research. If you do not agree with these choices, no worries. You don’t need to harass us and demand we take it down. Many times we just try to find a trusted activist in the area to indicate how to vote. There is much work to be done on teaching people how to vet candidates.
Canyon ISD – Paul Blake (8 votes)
School Bond Proposal Election – $300 million split into 4 propositions (A-D) – NO to all 4
This is the largest bond package in Amarillo history… at a time when citizens are drowning in economic stress. We cannot recommend a yes vote to any bond until the administration learns how to responsibly spend the money they already receive.
