All candidates running in the Democratic primary are welcome to come and introduce themselves, but speaking time will be limited to a few minutes.



Our speaker will be Tracy Fisher,  who will speak to us about  issues related to school vouchers and their impact on our schools, our property values,  and our taxes.

After serving 4 terms on the Coppell ISD School Board and receiving numerous awards for her work to improve the Gifted and Talented programs across the state, Tracy ran  unsuccessfully for the Texas State Board of Education in 2022.



Regarding Vouchers, Governor Abbott  has called several extra sessions of the State Legislature, which have cost the state millions trying to push through vouchers. He recently received a $6 million donation from a man in Pennsylvania to help with that effort.

Every state that has passed vouchers has faced financial challenges and increased debt in what has come to be seen as a welfare program for the rich. The governor is currently touring the state and holding meetings to push vouchers. He is also funding primary challengers against those Republicans who opposed vouchers (mainly in more rural counties). 

 



WARNING

A number of our members have brought to our attention mailers from

 Dr. Brian Williams, candidate for US House 32 which have attacked

 Julie Johnson, his leading opponent and our current representative in Texas House 115, accusing her of being opposed to a woman's choice, and being anti-abortion. He has also said she is pro-guns. 

 

Just to set the record straight...

 

Planned Parenthood recently endorsed Julie Johnson at the National Level, so she is definitely pro-choice.

 

She also has an F rating from the National Rifle Association, which means she is STRONGLY AGAINST policies the NRA pushes to expand access to guns. 

 

Please be aware of misinformation. We have reelected Julie Johnson several times because she stands for what Democrats believe.
