Leadership Requires Honesty

Updated: Apr 22

Leadership is more than speech; it is about knowing the facts, understanding the decisions that need to be made, and building trust.

Attempting to be on the ballot running for Mayor in Oak Point, only to be disqualified because the residence is in the ETJ, then leaping over to LEISD to run for election does not show leadership. Making false claims that the Board and District leadership are up to "funding for dubious purposes" when the community decided to provide better schools for our kids is off base. My opponent has made false claims from day one.

However, pictures are worth a thousand words.

False: Rating in the District have continual decreases.

Truth: Ratings have increased since my tenure on the Board

False: Teacher pay has decreased

Truth: Since being on the Board, the teacher's pay and stipends have increased with job opportunities and more training.

Inaccurate: Students education should primarily focus on college

Truth: Over 75% of students go into the workforce and seek trade opportunities. Little Elm ISD instituted pathways that allow our students to choose a CTE path, College and the Military.

Inaccurate: Little Elm should refocus to retrofit existing facilities for usage

Truth: Little Elm ISD invested $21 million across the District to secure and retrofit our schools. As part of the bond package and long-term planning, we are investing in our schools and facilities.

Unfortunately, my opponent has never been to a Board meeting. He has never reached out to the District to learn about what is happening. Instead, my opponent is coming up with falsehoods.

So it begs the question: If you ran for mayor in another city but disqualified, then ran to sign up for the District, except you have no factual information, what type of leadership is that?
