Disappointed the bond package to improve school facilities in Stephenville failed in 2010 by 250 votes, a group of citizens has banded together to make sure the same thing doesn't happen again in May.
Community members - ranging from parents of young children to grandparents - have formed a political action committee, "Vote FOR SISD Bond," and are spreading the word about the importance of passing the $24 million measure.
"We knew we had to be on point about getting the facts out there and working to get the bond passed," said Christin Pack.
The group will host a rally to share information with the public about the bond at 5:30 p.m. Monday inside the gym at Faith Lutheran Church. Attendees will also have a chance to register to vote and get involved in the effort.
The group believes that "complacency" by voters who didn't take the time to vote on the measure is what made it fail two years ago.
"Our focus is to get supporters to the polls," Pack said. "We want to educate people on what the real issues are."
The group is raising money to purchase signs and do target mailouts.
Dr. Bob Fain, a retired educator, has also joined the movement to get the bond passed.
"Our schools are antiquated," Fain said. "They are not getting better with age."
