Elections: The candidate filing period for the May 4th city and school elections begins tomorrow and continues through Friday, February 15. The city of Liberty is also holding a special election to fill the unexpired council term of Paul Glazener. Filing period for special election candidates is longer – now through March 4. Candidates can file weekdays at their local municipal and school district administration offices. Dayton City Mayor Jeff Lambright will not seek another term.

School Funding: It is being reported widely that Texas lawmakers see school funding as a major issue for the 86th Legislative Session. District 18 State Rep. Ernest Bailes agrees with many in the state house and senate that the current system of public school funding, which the Texas Supreme Court has found to be “in need of reform”, is not equitable. Rep. Bailes said one big problem is that state school funding is weighted heavily in favor of charter schools over public schools. For those who may not be familiar, charter schools receive government funding but operate independently of the established state school system. There is an ongoing public debate over whether charter schools are private schools or are they state schools. Rep. Bailes said he and fellow lawmakers must find a way to make school funding fair and stop setting up public schools to fail.
****************************************************

The book is also available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and online at heartofawomanministires.org.
