Standing up for Texas schoolchildren since 2005

Public school chilren in line

Critical Primary Runoff Elections on Tuesday, May 28; Early Voting May 20-24

The future of neighborhood public schools is under threat like never before in Texas. Out-of-state and west Texas billionaires are supporting extremist candidates who seek to defund public education and institute a taxpayer-funded private school voucher program. Don’t be fooled by their lies in high-dollar media ads and mailers!

If enacted, their harmful statewide voucher scheme would:

    • Reduce funding for neighborhood public schools
    • Cut teacher and support staff positions
    • Eliminate funding for educational, extracurricular, and vocational programs
    • Force some schools to close or consolidate due to funding cuts.

We must elect and re-elect courageous Texas lawmakers who will defend our public schools and 5.5 million schoolchildren and stand up to the special interest bullies.

Texas Parent PAC endorses and recommends a vote for these Texas legislative candidates in primary runoff elections:

            HD 1: Rep. Gary VanDeaver, Republican of New Boston

            HD 29: Jeff Barry, Republican of Pearland

            HD 33: Rep. Justin Holland, Republican of Rockwall

            HD 37: Ruben Cortez, Jr., Democrat of Brownsville

            HD 44: Rep. John Kuempel, Republican of Seguin

            HD 58: Rep. DeWayne Burns, Republican of Burleson

Early Voting is May 20-24, and Election Day is Tuesday, May 28. Texas has what is known as an open primary, which means any registered voter may choose to vote in either political party’s primary election — regardless of how you voted in the past.

If you did not vote in the first round of the primary election on March 5, you are still eligible to vote in either party’s runoff election. But if you voted in the March 5 primary, you must vote in the same political party’s runoff election.

Save public schools picture

Because the runoff election occurs around the busy end of school, those who want their voices heard at the ballot box need to make a plan about when and where to vote. Information on voting locations, hours, and more is available at votetexas.gov or by contacting the office of your county elections administrator.

Please make a contribution to Texas Parent PAC today to turn out the vote for endorsed candidates in these critical primary runoff elections.

All Texas schools must be safe and fully funded so they can staff classrooms with top-notch educators who are fairly paid and supported, offering the high-quality education all children deserve.
