Place 6 on the LTISD Board is up for election in the May 10th elections - early voting for which starts Monday the 28th.
Local education activist David Lovelace is standing for the seat versus William Beard. Lovelace is famous for his large volume open records requests and has filed almost 5,000 document requests in the last 9 years which, opponents claim, have cost the LTISD over $1 million.
Rock on Bee Cave Bee !
$272,000.00 is a ridiculous amount of money to pay a school superintendent, do your homework people! look at other Texas school districts pay scales. Or maybe we can hire an assistant to an assistant to do that for us.
FYI... i do not know Lovelace just heard about him. Very few will stand for what is right in this world, way to many sheep.
Lovelace filed TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY-FOUR public information requests (footnote 11). It is every citizen's right to petition the school for legitimate public documents. However, Lovelace abused the process to the extent that he sent voluminous requests by email, fax, and letters for the same information, over and over again. At one point, a district fax machine was so tied up receiving requests that Lovelace then resorted to emailing entire staffs. This is all known.
Rather than discreetly working with teachers, principals, and other staff members for the benefit of his child, Lovelace used a sledge hammer of vindictiveness. Rather than work with a few people, Lovelace blasted as many as he could reach. If any disclosure was made, it was through his own actions.
Most educators approach their jobs with a spirit of working in the best interest of the child. Sadly, parents and teachers do not always see eye to eye on what is best for the child, but that does not give anyone the excuse to hold an entire district hostage with capricious acts. There is no good that will come from putting him on the school board.
You need to investigate a bit more.
I don't believe that the Bee Cave Bee is interested in actually researching this topic for readers.
