Updated on May 2, 2019
Abecedarian profile image

It use to be early voting was anywhere as long as it said early voting. This time around, only 4 early voting sites for this district.

Last day of early voting:April 30, 2019- 8 am. to 8 pm

As memory serves, early voting use to be that you could vote anywhere as long as the sign outside said "Vote here" or "Vote Aqui". Southside ISD has 4 early voting sites this election:

McCreles Library: 1023 Ada St.

Mission Library: 3134 Roosevelt Ave.

Precinct 1 office: 3505 Pleasanton Rd

Southside ISD Administration Bldg: 1460 Martinez Losoya

What some people don't understand is that early voting is important, waiting until election day sometimes the weather or family emergency, etc comes up and the voter doesn't get to make their voice heard.

Those serious about change and what's best for the education of the children at Southside ISD should get out and vote tomorrow.

The TEA appointed board has been running the district for 23 months, and to drive by there, you now see a med clinic being built on school property, miles of ornamental fencing and fancy gates, new structures.

What have they done for education? In 2016-2017, the High School Students TEA report showed they met the Standard Rating and Mastered Math; the had a 75 score in Post Secondary Readiness. In 2017-18 with the Board of Managers, they removed the Post Secondary Readiness score, so there is no way to know how the district is doing under this Board of Managers.But one thing is clear, they did not master anything this year.

Voters in the district have been known to be complacent, the worst voting area with the largest registered voters is the City of Sandy Oaks.

These are my recommendations and why

After following the Southern Bexar County activities, the district needs people on the board that care about the students, not just their well being, but their education and their future success.

Position 1: Kenneth Bouldin, Jr. and Jan Ruzza have served on the board before and have a history of working for the good of the district, the community and the students and would make good members of the board. Mr. Bouldin took steps to secure the district finances and stop the corruption by filing a lawsuit and a report with TEA. Ms. Ruzza, fought for funding for education and fought against a bond that would benefit Athletics and not education. Either one has shown the community how hard they are willing to work for the district and the community.

Maggie Morales's campaign is being funded by the Texas State Teachers Association PAC., with support from former Rep. Joe Farias and his family. Ms. Morales has stated that her background and degree is in non-profit's, she has failed to report that she worked towards a B.A. in Government and Politics at the University of Incarnate Word. Ms. Morales also put her name on the ballot during the last election and then made a political move to withdraw and instead "get" on the Board of Managers for the district, which she was not appointed to and is now running again. While interviewed by the local paper, she claimed that she and Ms. Farias were not running together, yet they have held fundraisers together. The district needs someone on the board that is not using the students education to move up in politics.

Position 2:

Mary Silva is the most qualified candidate in position #2. She has a long history in the district. She retired after 38 years as a clerk and secretary, has attended many board meetings in those 38 years plus and has kept up with the district, the students and their needs.

Julian Gonzales, had his time on the board, but was unable to keep control of the meetings and was no longer up on the legal knowledge of running a board.

Position 6:

Lisa Salazar is the most qualified candidate for this position. She severed the district well as school board member and President. Ms. Salazar's background in accounting, management of food service and custodial services as well as extensive background in Special Education makes her the candidate of choice. Ms. Salazar has received extensive board training and attended legislation session in help her during her position as a board President.

Johnny Cantu, Jr.'s concerns with the board are financial and consistency on the board. Never a mention of concern for the students or education.

Brenda Nagelhout- Olivarez, is employed at Edgewood ISD. Ms. Nagelhout-Olivarez claimed in an interview for the Express News that she would like money spent on infrastructure redirected towards education. Something that many members of the community and other board members have expressed as well. Ms. Nagelhout-Olivarez went on to say, that she had a differed adjudication for a $2 check that her ex-husband wrote, but she took care of as soon as she found out about it.

Arrest Record: 819654 -NAGELHOUT, BRENDA/XFW/11314 Previn, San Antonio, TX, 78251/Theft Service $20 to $500. Did not find mention an ex-husband. The record for this was all under Ms. Nagelhout only. There were mentions of failure to appear in court, warrants issued during the span of 2001- 2009. Southside ISD has had enough baggage to deal with and negative press.

The board needs a member, like Ms. Salazar that has the background needed and has worked with the community to further education at Southside ISD.

Position 7:

Robert Kindla is the most qualified candidate in this position. He has served the district in the past. Mr. Kindla was a graduate of the Southside ISD. He wants to fix the issues in the district and he wants to make sure that the children have the resources needed for a proper education.

Katie Farias, aka Katie Evans, Katie Evans Farias, works in the political field. Ms. Farias works with Rep. Roland Gutierrez, he husband was appointed to the Board of Managers at Southside ISD and left the position late last year. Ms. Farias voted for the Athletic bond of $17 million dollars, she said after talking to members of the community, she changed her mind, but making an uninformed decision is not what the district needs at a time when they are trying to get back on their feet.

Southside ISD doesn't need political baggage, they need members of the community that have proven to be for the students, the community and education. The last thing this community needs are politicians looking for step up into higher positions in politics.
