True and correct

All of our candidates for public office must fill out and sign this portion of their application to be placed on the ballot:

There are a few  places in Texas law where making a false statement on the ballot application is a violation of a law.

Generally violations are a class A misdemeanor.

The penalty?  A fine of up to $4,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year in a county jail.

We deserve better

    Truth and integrity are scarce commodities in EPISD.

    One silly comment on this subject. People just do not care about schools or laws. Probably would not mind having trustees living in Juarez! 😦

      It is looking like Loweree might be less than honest about her education and career. What’s with EPISD trustees and the truth? This may not be illegal, you don’t need a college degree to serve on a school board, but it is unethical to be dishonest. By the way, there is a code fo Educator Ethics that are statutory law. But I guess she can’t be stripped of her certifications for violating the code if she never had a certificate to begin with?!?!

      Maybe EPISD should remove their claims about her experience and education until it can be proven. If UTEP says she never earned a degree, that is an obvious discrepancy between EPISD and UTEP. Which institution would you believe or trust?

      RULE §247.2
      Code of Ethics and Standard Practices for Texas Educators
      Enforceable Standards.
      (1) Professional Ethical Conduct, Practices and Performance.
      (A) Standard 1.1. The educator shall not intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly engage in deceptive practices regarding official policies of the school district, educational institution, educator preparation program, the Texas Education Agency, or the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) and its certification process.

    The “mentally incapacitated” clause gives them some wiggle room.
