All-Essential Tex. SBOE Races: Who Are the Candidates?

“All-Essential Tex. SBOE Races: Who Are the Candidates?”

By Donna Garner


Beneath are my ideas concerning the upcoming Texas State Board of Schooling races within the March 1, 2022 major. Early voting in Texas begins on Feb. 14, 2022. 

 In my view, the Texas State Board of Schooling races are among the most necessary on the ticket due to the just about 6 million Texas public faculty college students whose lives may be irreparably broken by the kind of requirements and curriculum the TSBOE adopts.



What is occurring within the Texas SBOE races?  Three excellent incumbents haven’t any major nor normal race [Ellis, Young, Maynard], however three excellent Republicans are being challenged [Hickman, Hardy, Little].

The way forward for the Texas State Board of Schooling being conservative and dealing effectively collectively might depend on the outcomes of the three who’ve challengers.

The excellent news is that a number of new, sturdy conservatives have stepped as much as run.


SBOE DISTRICT 1 (El Paso to San Antonio-lower West Texas):  Lani Popp (a retired educator) is a really sturdy conservative candidate.  Her district could be very massive, however she nearly received in 2020 when she was within the outdated 5th District.  The opposite Repub towards whom she is working is Michael “Travis” Stevens (present San Antonio space highschool instructor).

The incumbent Dem Georgina Perez has determined to not search re-election and has endorsed Melissa Ortega (a fellow Dem – no different data identified about her).  Different Dems working are Omar Yanar (constitution faculty chief) and Laura Marquez (Particular Schooling advocate).


SBOE District 2 (Rio Grande Valley by way of the Coastal Bend):  LJ Francis (Corpus-Christi-based Jamaican-American working towards CRT points); Repub opponent Hilda Garza-Deshazo (former McAllen ISD trustee).

Current SBOE member and Dem incumbent Ruben Cortez has determined to run for the Texas Home.  The Dem SBOE candidates are Michael Vargas (Educate for America alum, trustee on the San Benito CISD Board); Thomas Garcia (Educate for America alum, instructor); Victor Perez (former member of Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD Board; Pete Garcia (retired educator); and Wayne Raasch (retired educator).


SBOE DISTRICT 3 (San Antonio & South Texas) – The 2 Repub candidates are Lana Jean Holland (retired instructor and principal) and Ken Morrow (an insurance coverage agent).

The Dem is SBOE incumbent Marisa Perez-Diaz who badly must be crushed to get her off the SBOE. She is a continuing downside for many who try to place constructive, conservative practices into place in our state.


SBOE DISTRICT 4 (Houston) – Sadly, no Repubs filed to run on this district.

Lawrence Allen (Dem) who’s presently on the SBOE has determined to not run.

5 Dems are working:  Theldon Department (aviation enterprise chief); Staci Childs (lawyer who created GirlTalk College which is a company just for Black ladies — https://www.fb.com/girltalkuniversity/.  Query: Is that this the place we would like college students to go to get recommendation on intimate topics?); Coretta Mallet-Fontenot (instructor, former unsuccessful Houston ISD Board candidate); Larry McKinzie (instructor, former unsuccessful Houston ISD Board candidate); Marvin Johnson (math professor, Ok-12 and better ed).


TEXAS SBOE DISTRICT 5 (Austin and surrounding counties)

Mark Loewe is a Republican (long-time training activist). Robert Morrow is a sexual pervert who barely misplaced within the earlier SBOE race when it was a unique district.  Please go to the Useful Supply part additional on down the web page to examine Robert Morrow’s sexual antics. 

Rebecca Bell-Metereau (a.okay.a., RBM) is the incumbent on the SBOE who received towards Lani Popp and Robert Morrow in 2020. RBM is one other sexual pervert who loves to show her college students at Texas State College concerning the LGBTQ agenda. [Please see Helpful Sources at the bottom of the page.] The opposite Dems are Kevin Guico (Empower Faculties, Educate for America alum); Juan Juarez (KIPP-Austin principal and Educate for America alum).


SBOE DISTRICT 6 (Houston’s western and northern suburbs):  Will Hickman is an impressive Republican SBOE member who was elected in 2020. He’s conservative and sensible, having accomplished two bachelor’s levels from Texas A&M College (Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Distribution) and later having acquired his lawyer’s levels from College of Houston Legislation Middle. He additionally has a B. A. in Spanish. He has labored for a significant power firm as in-house counsel since 2004 and is aware of the Texas Schooling Code totally. He helped to take away the politics of local weather alarmism from the science TEKS in 2021 and inspired the SBOE to reject three radical LGBTQ textbooks as a result of they didn’t align with the SBOE’s new well being training requirements.

Will Hickman is working towards Repub Mike Wolfe (former Harris Co. Dept. of Ed. trustee).

Michelle Palmer (instructor, unelected Dem nominee in 2020) is the lone Dem.


SBOE DISTRICT 7 (Southeast Texas): 

Matt Robinson (Repub) is on the SBOE now however has determined to not run once more.

4 Repubs are working.  Julie Pickren (former Alvin ISD trustee working towards CRT); Abolaji Tijani “Ayo” Ayobami (Nigerian-Amrican pastor); Michael Barton (police detective working towards authorities colleges); Danny Surman (social research instructor/coach in Dickinson ISD).  Pickren or Barton seem to me to be the very best selections.

Daniel Hochman is the lone Dem (science professor).


SBOE DISTRICTS 8, 9, and 10: The excellent news is that each one three Repub incumbents in all three of those districts (Audrey Younger), (Kevin Ellis), and (Tom Maynard) are working unopposed.


SBOE DISTRICT 11 (Ft. Price suburbs):  Due to Pat Hardy’s lengthy track-record as a Republican chief on the Board, there needs to be no query about her getting elected. She is certainly one of many sturdy conservative leaders. She is working towards Joshua Tarbay (P. E. instructor/former Weatherford ISD board member); Rebecca Garcia (no data identified about her); and D. C. Caldwell (very frequent filer who has by no means received).

The Dems are Luis Miguel Sifuentes (Educate for America alum); James Whitfield (former Colleyville Heritage principal fired earlier this 12 months due to CRT points – just lately dropped out of the SBOE race); D. C. Caldwell (very frequent filer who has by no means received).

*D. C. Caldwell has registered for each the Repub and Dem tickets. If he had been to win within the major, he can be robotically ineligible for the overall election underneath Texas legislation.  


SBOE DISTRICT 12 (Collin County and Northeast Texas):  Pam Little is the Repub incumbent and is unopposed. She is fairly conservative.

Alex Cornwallis (former unsuccessful Prosper ISD board candidate); and Roberto Velasco (Dallas ISD administrator and former principal) are the Dems.


SBOE DISTRICT 13 (City Dallas, Fort Price, and Arlington): The 4 Repub candidates are Natalie Kohn (social media strategist), Ajua Mason (an anti-CRT activist); Kathryn Monette (no data identified about her); and Denise Russell (unsuccessful GOP nominee in 2018). I really feel certain most of those 4 can be much better than leftist Dem Aicha Davis who’s presently on the SBOE.

The Dem incumbent leftist is Aicha Davis.


SBOE DISTRICT 14 (North-Central Texas Rural and a few suburbs): Repub incumbent Sue Melton-Malone (Waco) is working for re-election. My downside with Sue is that she isn’t a conservative chief on the Board who’s prepared to combat for what is true.

Getting into the first contest is Evelyn Brooks who lives in Frisco.  Evelyn advised me that she had been a Dem prior to now, admitted having been misled by the Dem Occasion, however now’s a powerful conservative Republican who believes in all mother and father having the correct to resolve on their youngsters’s academic setting. She believes Texas public colleges have to comply with the brand new legal guidelines handed by the final legislative session that may shield youngsters from the CRT supplies which have seeped into nearly all content material areas – not simply into social research.  She additionally pledges to stay vigilant towards Social-Emotional-Studying (SEL) classes that promote the CRT philosophy.  

The Dem nominee is Tracy Fisher (Coppell ISD trustee).


SBOE DISTRICT 15 (Panhandle, Plains, and Permian Basin): The Repub incumbent is Jay Johnson.  Nonetheless, I’m recommending Aaron Kinsey for this SBOE place. 

My downside with Jay Johnson is that he was completely unprepared to vote on the Well being Schooling textbooks as a result of he had not learn the necessary data in these textbooks to confirm precisely how the SBOE-adopted Well being Ed requirements had been being lined (or not lined).

I additionally had actual considerations when Jay Johnson voted to veto Heritage Classical Constitution (Hillside School Barney faculty curriculum).  As a substitute, Jay voted to approve Essence Prep which has been within the information just lately due to considerations over CRT ( https://www.texastribune.org/2022/01/06/critical-race-theory-charter-school/?utm_source=articleshare&utm_medium=social ).

The excellent news is that Aaron Kinsey is a good candidate for the SBOE. He’s an Air Pressure veteran, graduated on the high of his class at Texas A&M College (accounting and finance levels), was within the Corp of Cadets, flew 120 fight missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, attended Harvard Enterprise College, returned to Midland, Texas the place he established his personal enterprise which is the biggest aerial patrol service within the Permian Basin space for over 70 oil corporations.

Aaron and his spouse have three younger youngsters, and he has dedicated to combat on the SBOE to maintain mother and father accountable for their youngsters’s lives and training – free from authorities interference and Vital Race Principle. 

 Aaron is a logical thinker, a confirmed conservative, a wise businessman, a finance/accounting guru, and is dedicated to spending the time essential to serve on the SBOE.
