North Forest rollback election is defeated 4-1

Posted by Texas Education on December 8, 2008

Ouch, looks like ACORN was a bit misguided.

The referendum failed by a 4-to-1 margin Saturday night, according to preliminary results. The local Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, mounted a campaign against the rate hike.

“It was a difficult time to be calling an election,” said Adrain Johnson, the state-appointed superintendent and a former TEA associate commissioner. “I’m disappointed, but not discouraged. There’s a lot of work to be done to rebuild the trust in the community.”

I truly feel for this district, and after this, wonder what is going to happen. My thoughts and prayers go out to the community, administrators, parents, teachers and especially all the students of North Forest ISD. Chron story here.
