TYLER, TX - Today VOTE YES Committee Co-Chairs Senator Kevin Eltife and former Mayor Joey Seeber announced the committee's continued push to inform the public about the TISD Bond proposal on the November ballot.

The 89.8 million dollar bond package is Phase 3 of the ongoing plan to finish the work started on elementary schools and to build a new middle school relief campus for overcrowding and growth. The bond package can be funded with the current debt service tax rate and does not require a tax rate increase.

"We will continue right up to election day to do our best to inform the voters. We can finish the job we started on elementary schools and build a relief campus for middle school overcrowding with no increase in the tax rate. We believe the more information we can provide the taxpayers on this bond proposal the more they will like it. These public presentations allow the public to gather information on the bond proposal and to ask whatever questions they may have," Eltife said.

Seeber added, "As we get additional requests from service groups and community organizations we will do our best to accommodate them in the short period of time we have until the election on November 2. We're all working hard to make sure everyone gets as much information as possible before election day. Members of the TISD Administration and Board Members will make the presentations and answer questions and the Vote Yes Committee will continue to work to promote the bond proposal."

The public is also invited to join the VOTE YES Committee. For more information, call the campaign office at 903-360-VOTE (8683).
