TYLER-- Grassroots We the People give Tyler Independent School District a chance to speak up.
Grassroots members say TISD hasn't had any public hearings or meetings with taxpayers about the $89 million bond election. The bond is to rebuild two elementary schools and a middle school.
Until now, Grassroots We the People say they have unanswered questions, including how the district plans to pay for operations of the new schools.
Now, Grassroots leader JoAnn Fleming gave TISD and VOTE YES an invitation to hold two town hall meetings before the election. Grassroots member and TISD watchdog Rick Eisenbach says, "TISD has spoken to PTA and TISD employees---and they are taxpayers, but the vast majority in this tax district aren't really clear of what all is involved in this debt package."
