Voters Approve $97.3 Million Bond Proposal

 

2,263 For  1,838 Against

 

Midlothian ISD voters approved a $97.3 million bond proposal to build high

school #2, elementary #7, and an addition to Frank Seale Middle School.

Complete, but *unofficial results, showed that 2,263 people voted for the

bond package, while 1,838 people voted against the bond.

 

The vote indicates the support of the district's goal to meet existing and future facility

needs.

 

"Today marks the end of a long process. We acknowledge and thank past

and present Growth Management Committees, Midlothian ISD School Board of

Trustees, Community Advocates for Responsible Education (C.A.R.E.), the

wonderful citizens of Midlothian ISD, the district's faculty, staff, and

administrators, and the many others who worked tirelessly and

selflessly," said Dr. Stewart.

 

"The spirit and dedication of these people has been remarkable."

 

 "I am grateful and pleased," continued Dr. Stewart, "that

our bond issue passed. Our community looked at the information that was

presented and made an informed decision to support its school district and

to build on its excellence, for this day and for the future."

 

Dr. Stewart concluded, "As one process ends, another process begins:

building the bond projects. The School Board Trustees and I, look forward

to working with the MISD community to build the three bond projects in a

manner of which our community can be proud."

 

Bond 2011 updates will be available on the MISD Web site.

 

*  Votes will be canvassed on May 19 for the official results.
