Public School Finance Town Hall, Wednesday, March 31, 2004

Dear Friend:

Please join me and State Representatives Garnet Coleman, Jessica Farrar, and Scott Hochberg for a town hall meeting to discuss public school finance. The town hall will be held on Wednesday, March 31, 2004, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Jesse H. Jones High School. Jones High School is located at 7414 St. Lo Road, at the corner of Van Fleet Street and St. Lo Road.

Public school finance is an important issue that affects all of us. A huge share of the property tax and sales tax dollars you pay goes to support our schools. We want to inform you of the issues facing public education and school finance and some of the proposals being discussed about how to pay for public education. We'll hear from some experts, but leave plenty of time for questions and discussion. We want to hear from you. The evening will conclude at 8:30 p.m.

Please make every effort to attend this important community meeting. I hope to see you there. If you cannot attend and want to stay informed about this issue, please register your e-mail address at www.ellis.senate.state.tx.us to receive current district and office news.
