I’m confused, major media claims that Lloyd Doggett won the election, yet Hays County “final” results show Campbell with a 10% advantage. What’s the real story?

That District has more than Hays County in it, including much of Austin.

The ACC measure to have a lien on everybody’s property in 5 school districts was rejected in San Marcos and Bastrop because the opponents were organized. In Hays CISD there was no organized effort to oppose this measure. I and Barry Gilardi shouldered 90% of the responsibility of educating voters to this money grab. I personally handed out 1200 leaflets, spending $450 and Barry bought signs and placed them around spending almost as much as I did. If someone had organized a group I would’ve joined it doing as much or more. Letters to the Editor in the Free Press,I feel, were ineffective because of the very limited circulation. Nine out of ten people that I met do not read a local paper.
I believe that for the most part that it was ignorance and lassitude on the part of the non or barely educated voter and the ballot wording deception on the part of ACC that got this thing passed. The perception of free benefits prevailed. A lot of people won’t even understand how their taxes increased when they get their property tax bills: They won’t realize that they voted this increase upon themselves. They’ll just bitch that their taxes are too high. It’s ironic that the most ignorant and uneducated put so high a value on education. Well,%&$# ’em. Ray

Ray, I guess you think college campuses can be built for free?

Perhaps since Hays is a better school district than SM, and closer to Austin, were factors? I noticed a lot of the opposition to ACC was almost a personal hatred for all things Austin.

Aaron, ACC got hosed on the land they contracted to buy for the Buda/Kyle campus. They are paying way over market. In ACC’s defense, the San Marcos property was a much better deal. There were some strings attached, but a better deal.

I guess ACC can build their HCISD campus on the San Marcos property.
Wouldn’t that be ironic.
