On May 5, registered voters of the Stephenville ISD will have the opportunity to determine the future of the district.

Will we remain the same with overcrowded facilities or will we, the voters, give our approval and provide the administration and school board the authority to issue $60.8 million to implement needed improvements at Gilbert Intermediate and Stephenville High School?

I urge voters to vote for these needed improvements and I would remind people 65 and older with frozen taxes on their homestead that their taxes will not increase.
