|Invitation to Grassroots Forum on the $668.7 Million EPISD Bond|
Two community-generated forums on the proposed $668.7 million EPISD will be conducted on the October 15th and 22nd at local public libraries. This should provide El Pasoans the opportunity to review the bond proposal, and pose questions and concerns in a public manner.

Your engagement in this issue is strongly encouraged, as it greatly impacts the education of the children of our community.
The following are logistical details on both forums:
